The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research organisations. Today read about our new research strategy with The Royal Marsden, and learn about its four pillars and underpinning foundations.
World-leading cancer researchers have revealed plans to create a new generation of ‘anti-evolution’ therapies, designed to combat cancer’s lethal ability to adapt and evade treatment.
Our new research strategy offers a bold and ambitious vision that will speed up our progress against cancer, and will confronting its ability to adapt and evolve.
To achieve our ambitious research strategy we need to put down strong foundations in the way we organise and support our research.
We will move a step closer to cure by bringing personalised treatments into the clinic and developing them for patients.
We will comprehend the full complexity of cancer by harnessing the power of new technologies and Big Data.
We will overcome the challenges posed by cancer’s complexity, adaptability and evolution through scientific and clinical excellence, innovation and partnership.
To achieve our aims, we need to put down strong foundations in the way we organise and support our research.
We will take on the challenge of cancer’s complexity, evolution and drug resistance through the discovery of innovative new approaches to cancer treatment.
We will deliver better outcomes and improved quality of life for patients by establishing innovative treatments, diagnostics and strategies for prevention as part of routine healthcare.
We need your help to better understand how cancer develops when the complex process of cell division goes wrong.
Our Chief Executive and President, Professor Paul Workman, shares his experiences on his blog, The Drug Discoverer.
For more than 100 years, the ICR has played an important role in shaping understanding of cancer and how it can be treated.
