Let’s finish cancer: Centre for Cancer Drug Discovery

We have completed work on our new state-of-the-art drug discovery centre to create more and better drugs for cancer patients, and it is now open. 

The centre hosts the world’s first ‘Darwinian’ drug discovery programme, designed to tackle cancer’s lethal ability to evolve resistance to treatment. Here, we aim to develop a new generation of drugs that will make the difference to the lives of millions of people with cancer.

We still need your support to help finish equipping the centre and to continue to fund the exciting work that is now taking place within the building. 

Please make a donation to the Centre for Cancer Drug Discovery, or to find out more about how you could support this new Centre, please contact Hannah Joyce in the philanthropy team.
