Together we will beat cancerDonate
We chatted to three researchers working on TRACERx, Dr Emilia Lim, Dr William Hill and Emma Colliver about their work, what a day in their lives looks like, and how their paths have led to where they are today.
Up to 14% of people with lung cancer in the UK have never smoked. New research funded by us reveals why non-smokers face delays in getting diagnosed with lung cancer
A long-term study funded by Cancer Research UK has revealed how air pollution can cause lung cancer in people who have never smoked.
Charlie Swanton, our chief clinician, headed to the world’s most important climate change conference to talk about the links between pollution and lung cancer in never smokers…
We don’t always know why never-smokers develop lung cancer, but the data suggests that genetics play a role, as well as environmental or occupational exposures.
Despite today’s headlines, there’s no good evidence linking air pollution with breast cancer.
We look at new research measuring how much pollution we’re exposed to on our commutes, particularly in London.
30 years after Chernobyl and five years after Fukushima, we’re taking a look at what has been learnt about radiation-linked cancers.
A new expert report looks at the health toll of air pollution, and how to lower it
The third of our Grand Challenge topics asks: can we prevent cancer by studying ‘scars’ in its DNA?
