Our Research

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, has been driving scientific discoveries on cancer and its treatment for more than 100 years. We are internationally renowned for our work to untangle the genetics and causes of cancer, understand cancer biology and discover new personalised cancer treatments.

  • Genetics and cancer risks

    Our researchers are unravelling the roles played by genes, behaviour and environmental exposures in the development of cancer.
