NCRI is a partnership of cancer research funders working together to deliver better outcomes for all those affected by cancer.

NCRI uses data provided by its Partners to identify gaps in cancer research and convenes the research community to address them. We bring together the brightest minds to advance cancer research in the UK through our groups. We look out for unnecessary, expensive duplication of effort through our uniquely impartial position and guard against it. We tirelessly search for new ways and means to accelerate the progress of cancer research.

In 2021 NCRI celebrated its 20th anniversary. To mark the occasion, we have looked back at some of NCRI’s most significant achievements and asked some of our supporters to explain the impact they have had on the cancer research community.
