Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK is the world's leading independent charity dedicated to cancer research. We carry out scientific research to help prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. We have discovered new ways to beat cancer that together have saved hundreds of thousands of lives across the world.

One in three of us will get cancer at some point in our lives. Our groundbreaking work, funded almost entirely by the general public, will ensure that millions more people survive.


We spend over £2million each year on our research in Belfast, particularly focusing on bowel cancer, radiotherapy, prostate cancer and personalised treatments. We’re bringing together the best teams from Queen’s University Belfast (link is external), the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust (link is external) and other local organisations to help beat cancer sooner.
