At Cancer Research UK, we’re dedicated to finding new ways to prevent, treat and ultimately cure all cancers. Scientific research lies at the heart of everything we do.
But discoveries in the laboratory need to be translated into tangible benefits for cancer patients. If we’re to ensure that research really makes a difference to patients and the public, we need governments to make the right decisions.
That’s why our policy team campaigns to keep cancer at the top of the health agenda – so that the fruits of research are borne out in effective, life-saving policies.
We recently outlined our highlights from 2012. But with 2013 now well underway, we also wanted to take stock of some important policy milestones from last year, and look towards our priorities for this year.
