Research

Despite the rate of incidence and the high levels of recurrence and mortality, bladder cancer has long been overlooked in terms of research spending.  It has lagged behind other cancers and there have been few advances in new treatments or improvements in survival rates over the past thirty years.  Other, less common cancers, have received support and resources and consequently have demonstrated a significant improvement in outcomes for patients.  We want the same for bladder cancer patients.

Encouraging and supporting research into bladder cancer is one of our core aims as a charity.

Action Bladder Cancer UK is a National Institute for Health Research(NIHR) non-commercial Partner. This means the studies that we fund may be eligible to access NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) support.  You can find more details on the ABC UK Grants page.
