We are the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research.
We’ve saved millions of lives with our groundbreaking work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. People’s chances of surviving cancer have doubled in the last 40 years, and we’ve been at the heart of that progress.
But more than one in three of us will still get cancer at some point. Our vital work, funded entirely by the public, will help ensure that millions more people survive.
Our aim is to save lives from cancer. We do this through funding world-class research, providing information for patients, health professionals and the public, and influencing public policy to keep cancer at the top of the health agenda.
More people are beating cancer than ever before thanks to our work and your support. Explore our interactive timeline to discover highlights of what we’ve achieved together over the past decade since Cancer Research UK was formed
