Our Grand Challenge scientists at the National Physical Laboratory are using their expertise in measurement to draw a new map of cancer. The team hopes it will point to ways to diagnose and treat the disease.
Three new teams funded through our Grand Challenge are about to embark on research projects focusing on the microbiome, faulty genes and chronic inflammation.
We find out how stem cells could provide clues to how bowel cancer develops.
The time it takes for cancer to develop will vary from tumour to tumour. But, on the whole, it’s slower than you might expect, as this science surgery post explains.
Find out how Professor Ed Boyden at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his team have adapted the technology found in babies’ nappies to take sharper images of cancer cells.

Our scientists are working to improve brain tumour diagnosis. Find out how this could make treatment more personal, and guide people onto clinical trials.
Growing ‘mini brains’ in dishes is just one of the innovative ways our scientists are studying brain tumours in the lab. Find out how this could lead to new treatments.
Scientists are slowly uncovering what makes brain tumours tick. Combining this information with research on the healthy brain could lead to new treatments.
Brain tumours are heavily influenced by their surroundings so understanding the environment they’re in could reveal ways to destroy them.
