We want to change the future of breast cancer by funding world-class research. To date, we’ve invested around £230 million in research to drive forward progress. And we’re not about to stop.
What we've done so far
- We opened the UK’s first research centre dedicated entirely to breast cancer.
- We launched one of the world’s largest studies investigating causes of breast cancer.
- We established the UK’s first ever national breast cancer tissue bank, so that scientists can study real breast cancer samples.
- We’re here to give hope for the future by discovering how to prevent breast cancer, save lives and help people to live well with the disease.
To prevent as many breast cancers as possible we need to understand why some people develop breast cancer and others don’t. Read about our progress.
Our scientists are working to better understand breast cancer, find was to stop it from spreading and make sure everyone receives the most suitable treatment for them. Read about their discoveries.
Breast cancer affects lives in many different ways. We want to help everybody living with, or beyond the disease to live well. Here’s how our research helps people affected by breast cancer.

Our scientists won’t stop until we reach our goal that by 2050 everyone diagnosed with breast cancer will live and be supported to live well. Read our latest research news.
After seeing the impact breast cancer has on women and their families, I wanted to use my skills as a scientist to improve outcomes.
