We support almost 340 researchers across the UK and Ireland, at over 33 of the country's foremost universities and research institutes. This includes our world-class breast cancer research centre, the Breast Cancer Now Toby Robins Research Centre at the Institute of Cancer Research in London. Established in 1999, this dedicated Centre was the first of its kind in the UK and.
At the Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London, our team is finding ways to predict which cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) will become invasive breast cancer. In Manchester, our dedicated researchers are looking into breast cancer stem cell hibernation. Our team in Belfast is seeking to understand how the spread of breast cancer is influenced by non-cancer cells in the body, as well as identifying new ways to treat patients who have a poor prognosis. In Edinburgh, we are funding research into how cancers respond to hormone therapy.
Around the country, research funded by Breast Cancer Now is improving on and shaping our understanding of breast cancer.
