About Cancer Research

Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

In the 1970s, less than a quarter of people with cancer survived. But over the last 40 years, survival has doubled – today half will survive.

Our ambition is to accelerate progress and see three-quarters of people surviving the disease within the next 20 years.

Our ambitious new strategy will give us the foundations we need to tackle the challenges ahead.

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.

In the coming years, we’ll concentrate our research in these four areas to make a difference to people with cancer and their families.
