Objectives

The goodwill, generosity and tireless efforts of our volunteers, patrons, donors and supporters have enabled researchers at the University of Westminster and the University of Oxford to carry out novel research to improve breast cancer detection and survival by funding their salaries, equipment and lab space.

Our collection of biological samples and diet and lifestyle information from breast cancer patients was completed in 2015, and will provide a vital resource for understanding risk factors associated with secondary spread and for research into diagnosis, treatment and vaccine design.

In 2018, one of the charity’s main research teams moved into the brand new Centre for Cancer Immunology at the University of Southampton, with further research bases maintained at Oriel College, University of Oxford, Barts Cancer Institute, London, and the University of Sheffield.

Today, Against Breast Cancer fund research projects to the value of £4 million, and its researchers have continued to make advances in their search to prevent secondary spread, increase survival and ultimately discover the Holy Grail – a vaccine to prevent the disease. But our story can only carry on with your continued support.
