Scientists may compete to be the first to make a world-changing discovery, but they are linked together by an unflinching commitment to better understand cancer and how we can live with it.
For this reason they share their discoveries. And they need to because cancer is not one disease – it’s more than 200. All different, unique diseases, which require different approaches for treatment. Treatments that work for some cancers don’t work for others and sometimes those treatments simply stop working.
We do all those things for one very good reason – to gain a global perspective. Because research doesn’t happen in isolation. The answers will not come from one scientist, in one lab, in one country.
This worldwide research will enhance our understanding of cancer and help us find and develop better, more effective treatments. Treatments personalised to your unique needs. Treatments you, your family or your family’s family may rely on in the future.
But research won’t happen without funding. And without research we make no further progress. Without research we stop investing in our future health.
To realise our vision of no life cut short by cancer the research can never stop.
Worldwide Cancer Research: if we believe a project can make a difference in the fight against cancer then we will award a grant to make it happen. We’re not interested in national borders or any kind of geographical bias, just the most promising proposals. And that’s the very reason we ask the brightest and best scientists from around the world to bring their research projects to us.
Only worldwide research will enhance our understanding of cancer and help us find and develop better, more effective treatments. And only a global search for answers will help us get to grips with this disease.
