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 450 researchers and are funding 90 research grants worth almost £24 million at 29 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.
