North West Cancer Research logo

North West Cancer Research is the leading cancer research charity in the North West of England that is helping to find life-saving solutions to stop cancer sooner. We achieve this by funding world class cancer research in North West England and North Wales. We are committed to achieving a cancer free future and like Rutherford Cancer Centres, greater outcomes for patients. Since funding our very first project almost 70 years ago, we have been at the forefront of life-saving research - supporting some of the best cancer research at the University of Liverpool, Bangor University and Lancaster University.
