Over a century of life-changing research

Cancer Research UK was formed 20 years ago, in 2002. However, our history goes back much further, to 1902, with the founding of the Imperial Cancer Research Fund. Thanks to supporters like you, our pioneering work into how to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer has benefitted millions of lives over the past 120 years. Find out more about how our research has already made a difference to patients and what we are funding right now.

Our strategy to beat cancer

We exist to beat cancer. For the past 120 years, we’ve been making discoveries that save lives. But we have so much more to do as cancer remains one of the world's greatest health challenges. Our strategy renews our focus on making discoveries, driving progress and bringing hope to those affected by cancer.
