Research aims

  1. Test tubes icon
    • We want to understand more about why children develop cancer, to find explanations for the increase in risk and to establish whether prevention is a possibility
    • We want to drive forward the development of novel approaches to diagnosis, identification of markers of likely outcome and improved treatments for childhood cancer in order to tackle those forms which still elude successful treatment and to minimise the risk of adverse, treatment-related effects
    • We want to understand more about the long-term risks faced by childhood cancer survivors, of whom there are now more than 35,000 in the UK.
