The Wales Cancer Research Centre was founded in 2015. Since the launch of the centre, we have had the privilege of witnessing some astounding achievements. Our researchers have generated £40 million through the grants they have been awarded, bringing income into Wales. In fact, for every £1 of Welsh Government funding we ave received, we have generated £6.50.
Our research outputs have made a significant contribution to the global effort to tackle cancer; to date we have published 364 articles in peer reviewed journals. The scope of our research means that our work touches every element of the patient journey and will change lives, not just in Wales, but internationally.
We are thrilled that the centre has been awarded fundingto allow our invaluable research to continue for a further five years. This event will detail our ambitions and direction of travel as we enter the new funding period and give you a chance to feed in your thoughts.
