Our research work
If we are to meet our ambition that by 2050, everyone who gets breast cancer will live, then we need to make sure we fund the most impactful research.
Our research is focused on four key areas – risk and prevention, early detection and diagnosis, treatment and secondary breast cancer. We believe this approach to research will allow us to achieve our ambition and stop breast cancer taking lives.
Find out more about each area of research and the work we are doing.
