Cells with nuclei in blue and mitochondria (energy factories) in green.

Our researchers have found mutations that make cancers much more likely to respond to immunotherapy. It's a chance to make breakthrough treatments work for many more people.

A Cancer Research UK-funded researcher in the lab.

We helped fund a trial into neuroblastoma treatment that has improved how doctors treat the disease when other options aren't working. It's an important step forward in treating these relapsed and refractory tumours, which have some of the lowest survival rates for any childhood cancer.   We helped fund a trial into neuroblastoma treatment that has improved how doctors treat the disease when other options aren't working.

We're funding the UK's first precision cancer prevention trial unit. It's testing a drug that could help protect people with Li Fraumeni Syndrome, a genetic condition that can lead to a more than 90% lifetime risk of cancer, against the disease.
