Our research is saving lives

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK, but survival over the last 40 years has nearly doubled. Today, 8 in 10 women diagnosed with breast cancer will survive their disease for 10 years or more. Our research underpins many of today’s treatments and has helped save thousands of lives.
