About Cancer Research UK:
Cancer Research UK is the world's leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. Thanks to the generosity of the public, CRUK has been at the heart of progress that has seen cancer survival in the UK double in the last 40 years. In the South, cancer death rates have decreased 10 percent in the past 10 years.
But there is still much to be done. In Southampton alone, around 510 people still lose their lives to cancer every year. Last year the charity spent more than GBP6m in Southampton, where more than 150 scientists, doctors and nurses are working on world class research projects to beat cancer sooner in the Southampton Cancer Research Centre.
Work is specifically focussed on tackling oesophageal, bowel, breast and head and neck cancers while our CRUK-funded Clinical Trials Unit is working with local researchers to design and run trials of new treatments and therapies, recruiting patients both from Southampton and across the UK.
