Research is at the heart of everything Breakthrough Breast Cancer does. We fund 25% of all breast cancer research in the UK, much of which takes place in our own Research Centre, which opened in 1999.
Our work centres on four key areas: Prevention, Detection, Diagnosis and Treatment. By finding the causes, we will know how to prevent the disease; by promoting early detection, more women will recognise the signs and symptoms of breast cancer; by finding ways to make the diagnosis of breast cancer more accurate, more women will receive precise treatments; and by discovering new and better treatments and improving health services, women will receive effective, guaranteed treatments and care.
