About Breast Cancer Campaign
Breast cancer is a disease that will affect one in nine women in their lifetime. Each year over 40,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and over 12,800 die. The aim of Breast Cancer Campaign is to research the cure.
They aim to do this by funding research, which looks at:
• Improving diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
• Better understanding how it develops
• And ultimately either curing the disease or preventing it.
Breast Cancer Campaign will fund this research at any centre of excellence anywhere within the United Kingdom providing it meets their quality criteria and is favourably peer reviewed. They have a particular interest in research which progresses promising laboratory results into the clinic and develops the research of talented young investigators.
Breast Cancer Campaign’s Scientific Advisory Board is chaired by Professor Alastair Thompson who is Professor of Surgical Oncology at the University of Dundee. The members of the Board reflect a wide range of disciplines and are all actively working in breast cancer research.
