About Breakthrough Cancer Research

Breakthrough Cancer Research (Breakthrough) is an Irish medical research charity focused on cancer. We work to significantly impact the number of people who can survive this disease. We invest in world-class research in Ireland to impact the quality of life for cancer patients and save lives. We are particularly focused on improving outcomes for those cancers, which are poorly served by current treatment options.

What we have achieved so far

With your help we want to bring more innovative and potentially life-saving cancer treatments to trial faster allowing us to start improving and saving the lives of the people we love, not twenty years from now, but this year, next year and the year after.
