We're funding research breakthroughs

By investing in research, we’ll support the breakthroughs so desperately needed for people with pancreatic cancer

Research into pancreatic cancer has been underfunded for decades – it only receives 3% of the UK cancer research budget. This is three times less than research spend on breast cancer.

Our research strategy is focused on investing in the best and the brightest researchers, tackling the key priority areas for people with pancreatic cancer and the research community.

By investing in the next generation of researchers, earlier diagnosis and better treatments and care, we’re determined to transform the future for people with pancreatic cancer.
