Funding


We receive funding from various organisations and industrial collaborators. However, much of our research is supported to two key charities: Prevent Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Now.

Breast Cancer Now

Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer in 2015.

The Breast Cancer Now Unit in Manchester is part of a network of research units established by Breast Cancer Now across the UK. Their research centre is located at the Institute of Cancer Research in London and other units are located in King’s College London and Manchester. The charity also funds research in many other institutions in the UK and Ireland.
