Some of the world’s leading cancer research is happening in Wales. In the pursuit of a cure, we’re making vital progress into prevention, early diagnosis and better treatment, which will benefit cancer patients in Wales and beyond.
Money raised for Cancer Research Wales goes to clinical and laboratory based cancer research in universities and hospitals across Wales. That’s where the breakthroughs are taking place. It’s where our scientists are finding answers to the questions that are being asked by cancer researchers all over the world.
They’re questions that cover many different types of cancer, from prostate to breast to blood, and many more. And as well as focusing on these site-specific diseases, our research takes us into the fundamental processes of cancer biology. That means we’re looking at why and how cancer cells grow, invade and spread, and why some resist treatment.
All of this is being done in universities and hospitals across Wales, including Velindre Cancer Centre, which is a centre of excellence for the non-surgical treatment of cancer. As well as being the site of our laboratories, its home to the only specialist oncology library in Wales – a valued information hub funded by Cancer Research Wales.
We’re proud to be at the heart of this. We’re proud to be funding some of the most innovative cancer research in the world. And we’re proud to be giving hope to people with cancer, and to their families.
Every £1 is so valuable as we try to find a cure for cancer.
