We are an independent charity that supports innovative breast cancer research across the UK.
We aim to help beat breast cancer and save lives by supporting ground-breaking research.
Through our fundraising we support research organisations to develop and
run breast cancer research programmes. These programmes enable huge
steps to be taken in improving the prevention and treatment of breast
cancer – the most common type of cancer in the UK.
Breast Cancer Research Aid’s support of the work carried out at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, helps ensure discoveries made in our laboratories lead to new treatments for breast cancer. At the ICR we discover new cancer drugs and combination therapies. We uncover new insights into the causes of breast cancer and how it becomes resistant to treatment, and we develop novel ways to image tumours. But to embark on our innovative research, we need your support. This is where Breast Cancer Research Aid plays such an important role. Through your funding, our scientists are able to continue their research with access to the latest technology and cutting-edge infrastructure. This will allow them to continue making significant steps towards improving the lives of breast cancer patients around the world.
THE INSTITUTE OF CANCER RESEARCH (ICR), LONDON
Thanks to the support of Breast Cancer Research Aid, scientists here at Cardiff University’s European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute are able to carry out world-leading research which has the potential to revolutionise the way we tackle cancer. By improving our understanding of how and why different cancers grow and spread, we aim to develop new and effective therapies which will make a real difference to the lives of cancer patients - and your support will help us to get there faster.
