What is Cancer Research UK and what do they do?
- Cancer Research UK is a registered charity in the UK who raise money to go into vital, life-changing research.
- Cancer research is research into cancer to identify causes and develop strategies for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure. Cancer research ranges from epidemiology, molecular bioscience to the performance of clinical trials to evaluate and compare applications of the various cancer treatments.
- For every £1 donated, 80p is used to beat cancer (the remaining 20p goes towards raising funds for the future). The majority that we spend each year goes towards our ground-breaking research. And thanks to research, cancer survival is improving and has doubled over the past 40 years in the UK.
