27 new research projects awarded

We’ve just given the green-light to 27 new research projects- with a combined research investment of almost £5 million.

The new projects, at top research institutes in the UK, the US, Europe, and Australia and New Zealand, will tackle a range of cancers including breast cancer, prostate cancer, bowel cancer, blood cancers and brain tumours.

You can see more about these latest projects on our new project map at our blog here.

Dr Helen Rippon, Head of Research at Worldwide Cancer Research said: “We fund the best research we can around the world, and I’m really excited about the projects awarded in this latest round. From developing cutting-edge treatments like immunotherapies and cancer vaccines to getting right to the heart of how and why cancer develops, each of these new projects has real potential to make a difference.”

“Thanks to our supporters, this round we have been able to award more money to cancer research than ever before. We are hugely grateful for every penny we can use in the fight against cancer.”

We receive over 700 applications for funding from scientists every year. But we just don’t have the money to fund them all. Find out more about how we go about the difficult process of deciding which projects to fund in our latest blog post.
