We invest in the best and brightest researchers in the UK and Ireland, so they can find new ways to treat and ultimately cure these devastating cancers and conditions.

Our funding has four aims:

1. Helping patients: We always want the research we fund to lead to new cures and better treatment and support for patients 

2. Working with the best and brightest: We support only the highest quality of researchers who are working in top quality research programmes

3. Funding the underfunded: We identify those areas which are underfunded and consider how to support these 

4. Sharing knowledge: We want to make sure that researchers can share their research with other researchers and doctors, so their findings can transform as many lives as possible
