About our research

We believe, if we all act now, by 2050 everybody who develops breast cancer will live – and live well.

We need to make sure we fund the most impactful research, and right now support almost 380 researchers and are funding 85 research grants worth almost £25 million at 31 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.
