Our international team of scientists are tackling a fundamental question about how cancer develops: why do some gene faults only cause cancer in certain organs?
Scientists are taking a leaf out of Darwin’s evolutionary handbook to understand how lung cancer evolves.
Our scientists are rewriting the breast cancer rulebook. By looking at faults in tumour DNA, they’ve found that breast cancer is not 1 but 10 different diseases each with a different risk of coming back or spreading.
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.

A genome, a gene and a chromosome are all structures of DNA. The difference between them is the amount of DNA they contain.
Two important cancer genes cooperate to make lung cancers more aggressive in mice, according to new research.
