Cancer Research UK's vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
Over the last 40 years, cancer survival rates in the UK have doubled. In the 1970s just a quarter of people survived. Today that figure is half.
Our ambition is to accelerate progress and see three quarters of patients surviving the disease within the next 20 years.
This requires us to set an ambitious new agenda for cancer research, substantially increasing our investment, pioneering new approaches and bringing new disciplines to bear on the cancer problem.
