Cancer Research Wales welcomed as new NCRI Partner
Date published: Apr 30 2020
The National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) is pleased to announce that Cancer Research Wales, one of the leading cancer charities in Wales, has joined NCRI as a Partner. Cancer Research Wales is dedicated to the pursuit of a cure for cancer. They are making progress in prevention, early diagnosis and treatment, which will benefit cancer patients in Wales and beyond.
Cancer Research Wales built state of the art laboratories at Velindre Cancer Centre, which allowed clinicians and scientists to work together more closely. They were also, along with the Welsh Government, a major stakeholder in the formation and funding of The Wales Cancer Bank, which set the gold-standard for the collection tissue. In the last 10 years alone Cancer Research Wales has pledged over £15M for new research in areas across Wales, such as Swansea, Wrexham, Bangor and Cardiff.
We are delighted to have Cancer Research Wales join NCRI as a Partner, they join Health and Care Research Wales and Tenovus Cancer Care representing funding bodies and cancer research charities in Wales. We look forward to working with them and other Partners to maximise the impact of cancer research for patients and the public across Wales and beyond.
Iain Frame, CEO, NCRI
It is a great privilege to become NCRI Partners, which represents another milestone in the rich history of the charity. As we work alongside other partners, we hope that our unique contribution will provide added value to the overall aims and objectives of the NCRI for the advancement of cancer research and cancer treatment everywhere.
