    About the employer

    Cancer Research UK is a cancer research and awareness charity in the United Kingdom and Isle of Man, formed on 4 February 2002 by the merger of The Cancer Research Campaign and the Imperial Cancer Research Fund. As the world's largest independent cancer research charity it conducts research by the charity's own staff and by its grant-funded researchers. It also provides information about cancer and runs campaigns aimed at raising awareness and influencing public policy.

    Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. They have discovered new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer that together have saved millions of lives across the world. Cancer Research UK has been at the heart of the progress that has already seen survival rates double in the last thirty years. But one in three of us will still get cancer at some point. Our groundbreaking work, funded entirely by the public (It raises money through donations, legacies, community fundraising, events, retail and corporate partnerships. Over 40,000 people are regular volunteers), will help ensure that millions more people will survive. Cancer Research UK works in partnership with others to achieve the greatest impact in the global fight against cancer. They provide life-changing information to anyone affected by cancer, run awareness initiatives so that cancer can be detected early, and help people reduce their risk of the disease. Their campaigning and lobbying keeps cancer at the top of the political agenda. Cancer Research UK became full UICC member in 1986.
