What does cancer research money go to? We spend money on the very best projects that come our way, so we don’t have set amounts to spend on each cancer type. But we do keep an eye out for projects that will help speed up progress for cancers with very low survival, such as lung, pancreatic, oesophageal and brain tumours.
What is the size of Cancer Research UK? In the financial year 2021/2022 it included £193m on research projects focusing on specific cancers and £79m on research that underpins all cancers. Here you can explore in more detail how and where we fund research, and how your own work fits in.
