What we do

Research is the key to improving survival chances for those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. So we're dedicated exclusively to funding and promoting research.


Research is at the heart of what we do - and is all that we do. We're the only national charity with this single-minded focus on pancreatic cancer research.


Our mission is to defeat pancreatic cancer by funding and promoting innovative, world-class research into the disease - research that will lead to the development of more effective detection, diagnosis and treatment.


We directly fund research into the disease by offering grants to researchers in universities, research institutes and hospitals in the UK and Ireland.

We encourage the major research funding organisations and the research community to give pancreatic cancer greater attention.

£9.2 million of research funded so far to defeat pancreatic cancer, together with £2 million committed to the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund Tissue Bank
