Cancer and Polio Research Fund


 

  • We fund research into cancer and other crippling diseases at universities, research institutions and hospitals throughout the country
  • Our specialism is the spread of cancer, which is the cause of two thirds of all cancer deaths
  • We have recently made a significant discovery in the fight against cancer: a family of genes that is responsible for its spread
  • The next step is to develop drugs to control these genes so that we can stop cancer spreading and save lives
  • Our own Cancer and Polio Research Fund Laboratories are now recognised as world leaders in this area
  • We are one of the few charities, if not the only one, that supports research into the long-term after-effects of polio, which affect some 40,000 people in the UK
  • Our aim is to understand the condition better so that we can improve the quality of sufferers' lives

Registered charity number 326812
