Cancer

Our researchers are dedicated to the cause of controlling cancer and its effects. Research extends from discovering and developing new drugs, novel treatments and methods of detection and diagnosis, to improving prevention, screening, treatment and supportive care strategies. This is based on evidence which supports best practice, and consideration of the wider impact of cancer not only on the individual, but the community which surrounds and supports them.
