Working with philanthropists
We work closely with individuals and family offices who are passionate about making a huge impact on cancer research and transforming lives.
By developing long-term relationships with donors, we offer the opportunity to see our work first-hand by meeting our scientists and clinicians, who will help you understand how your gift is changing the face of research into new cancer treatments and tackling drug resistance.

Trusts, foundations and charity partners
Our dedicated team works closely with trusts, foundations and charity partners who play an important role in enabling our state-of-the-art infrastructure. From investing in cutting-edge technology to innovative research projects at our sites in Chelsea and Sutton, your support is critical to our world leading cancer research.
Your investment supports our work by providing funds that are directed to cancer research projects matching a specific area of interest or tumour type, or where the priority is greatest.

This year, our key priorities are:
Some cancer types, such as sarcoma, childhood and pancreatic cancer, are harder to treat and survive. As a charity and university, we have a special responsibility to research cancers of unmet need. Please help us to invest in the scientists and equipment they need to open fresh avenues for research and treatment.
Investing in the latest technology to defeat cancer
Rapid advances in technology mean we must constantly invest in the latest equipment for our research, to give us the best chance of defeating cancer. Whether a new microscopy system to analyse 3D tumour models, or sequencing machines to understand the genetics of individual cancer cells, the cost of technology can reach hundreds of thousand of pounds every year.
The ICR Studentships Awards enable us to develop the very best young scientists and clinicians through the various stages of their training, from doctoral studentships to their first team leader positions.
