Transforming how breast cancer is treated in East London.
Our research into cancer
Cancer is a leading cause of death in the UK, with outcomes in North East London being amongst the poorest in the country.
These researchers are building our understanding of cancer biology and aim to translate their discoveries into new ways to prevent and treat cancer.
The difference we’re making
- Supporting five translatable research programmes that have been identified as key targets for research in the next decade;
- Recruiting leading scientists to take forward programmes of research;
- Enabling researchers to study the cancer stroma, cancer prevention, genomics, and the behaviour of cancer cells and how they respond to treatment;
- Supporting research in cancer screening and early diagnosis, including developing a new way to scan patients for prostate cancer, to detect tumours earlier when they are easier to treat.
Meet the scientist
Our funding enabled Barts Cancer Institute to recruit Professor Victoria Sanz-Moreno. Her work is helping us to better understand how tumour cells spread around the body and how they become resistant to treatment. This could lead to better therapies for patients in the future.
Help us to fund extraordinary research
We’re making progress every day, but we need to ensure that the researchers of the future have the time, resources and expert guidance to make the next breakthroughs.
Thank you to our donors
The battle against cancer is ongoing. Even though we are making progress every day, we need to ensure that the researchers of the future have the time, resources and expert guidance to make the next breakthroughs. Thank you to our donors for your support so far.
