Yorkshire Cancer Research
Yorkshire Cancer Research is a registered charity that funds research, principally in Yorkshire, into the causes and cures of cancer. We do this by fundraising in Yorkshire and providing awards to Yorkshire based academic institutions. Through publishing and sharing the results of this research with the worlds scientific community, Yorkshire Cancer Research hopes to develop more effective treatments for cancer sufferers world-wide.
Yorkshire Cancer Research raises its money in Yorkshire and spends it in Yorkshire at its five centres of excellence based at the universities of Bradford, Hull, Leeds, Sheffield and York and their associated teaching hospitals.
We are the most successful regional medical research charity in the UK and we fund internationally recognised research, which focuses on a variety of cancers including: breast, bowel, cervical, non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, ovarian, prostate, skin, and genetics of cancers.
We are not a regional division of a national charity we are an independent charity, based and operating in Yorkshire only. We are still, however, at the very forefront of the international fight to find a cure for cancer. We’re working for a world without cancer Your support is crucial in helping us fund vital research.
