About our research
We believe we can stop women dying from breast cancer by 2050 – but only if we all act now.
We need to make sure we fund the most impactful research, and right now, support almost 400 researchers and are funding 105 research grants worth over £26 million at over 30 institutions across the UK and Ireland.
Our research is focused on four key areas – risk and prevention, early detection and diagnosis, treatment and secondary breast cancer. We believe that this approach to research will allow us to achieve our ambition and stop breast cancer taking lives.

Dr Plant is studying the metabolism of cancer cells, which could lead to new ways to classify different types of breast cancer and new ways to identify appropriate treatment.
