Our Research Projects

Our 2018 Research Projects

NBCF is committed to funding innovative and game-changing breast cancer research across the spectrum.

This year is no exception.

Our 20 new projects aim to improve early detection, treatments and quality of life for breast cancer patients.

They also tackle promising new areas of research including personalised immunotherapies for hard-to-treat breast cancers; targeted treatment delivery systems; and predictive tests for metastatic breast cancer.

All work towards our determined goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
