Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK is the world’s largest independent cancer research charity, and the single biggest charitable funder of research at The Institute of Cancer Research.

Many members of faculty hold Cancer Research UK grants, and we gain funding for major programmes of research in cancer biology, genetics and molecular pathology. Cancer Research UK grants also support our work in designing new cancer therapeutics, and our activities in drug development, cancer imaging and clinical trials. 

The ICR and The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust are together designated a Cancer Research UK Centre. The centre is a strategic initiative through which Cancer Research UK, the ICR and The Royal Marsden work together on translational and clinical research. It funds research in our Drug Development Unit and in radiotherapy and imaging.
