    Goals / remit

Cancer Research UK is the world's leading independent organisation dedicated to cancer research and the largest independent funder of cancer research in Europe.

In 2012/13, we spent over £330million (€390million) on research. Our of this came from the generosity of the public. We fund over 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses and around 250 clinical trials. Our world-class researchers collaborate with cancer experts in over 50 countries, working together to fight cancer.

We are also involved in a number of international projects, such as the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC); the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC); and the International Cancer Benchmarking Partnership which is investigating cancer outcomes in a number of countries.
