cancer research wales | Our Research

Cancer Research Wales funds a great variety of projects in Wales which we feel are important in our battle against cancer.

These projects are undertaken in the universities and hospitals throughout the principality and cover many cancer sites that include cancers of the prostate, colon, breast, kidney, blood (leukemia), cervix and esophagus. As well as focusing on site specific cancers the Cancer Research Wales research portfolio is rich in studies that seek to better understand the fundamental processes of cancer biology that are common to all cancers, such as uncontrolled cell growth, invasion and spread, resistance to chemo- and radiotherapies and immune evasion.

We constantly strive to support timely and pioneering cancer research as exemplified through sponsorship of several key emerging fields in cancer.
