When Newcastle started its research into cancer 40 years ago, mortality from the disease was at a peak in the UK. Since then, cancer survival rates have doubled in part because of the efforts of people at Newcastle.

But cancer still accounts for a quarter of all deaths in the UK, and peoples lives are still being cut short because we have work to do. 1 in 2 people in the UK will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.

To ensure that the tides in the battle against cancer remain in our favour, we need you to join us on our mission.

By donating or fundraising for the Newcastle University Cancer Fund you can make a direct difference in the lab, where researchers fight every day for people all over the world who live with cancer.

In the past 40 years, we have

- Discovered PARP inhibitors, a new type of cancer drug which is revolutionising the types of treatment doctors can offer to people with cancer

- Found new ways to classify blood and brain cancers in children, leading to a more accurate diagnosis with a better chance of successful treatment

- Designed a device which has helped to significantly improve detection of colorectal cancers and is routinely used in the NHS

Please donate what you can or fundraise for us today to help us build on this work and make sure that people with cancer live longer, better lives.
