We want survival in the UK to be among the best in the world. We’re focusing our efforts in four key areas – working to help prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise current treatments by personalising them and making them even more effective.
We’ll continue to support research into all types of cancer and across all age groups. And we’re keeping our focus on understanding the biology of cancer so we can use this vital knowledge to save more lives.
To help accelerate progress, we’ll be investing an additional £50 million a year into new funding schemes for our researchers. These will encourage collaboration and innovation, and support research tackling some of the biggest scientific challenges in cancer research.
We’ll campaign for the best cancer services in all parts of the UK, and give more people the chance to join the fight against cancer.
Cancer Research UK's ambition is to see 3 in 4 people survive by 2034. If we got there a year quicker, we’d save 157,000 lives. If we got there a day quicker, we’d save 430 lives, if we got there an hour quicker, we’d save 18 lives.
