Cancer Research Wales
Velindre Hospital (CC)
Cancer Research Wales is the only totally independent National Cancer Research Charity for Wales. Founded in 1966 with the philosophy that – ALL monies raised in Wales is spent in Wales supporting internationally renowned scientists and PhD students working across the Principality.
The research projects we support are all externally appraised and must receive an Alpha rating before funding is considered.
This means that our projects are at the "cutting edge" of cancer research. We also fund the only dedicated cancer library in Wales which is invaluable to all health professionals including those from other charities. We are totally dependent on the generosity of the public to support our work by way of donations and legacies.
