Thank you for supporting Breakthrough Cancer Research. We'd like to keep in touch with you about our research work but your privacy is important to us. Please let us know how you would like to hear from us. You can choose to opt out of our communications at any stage.



Breakthrough Cancer Research does not receive any guaranteed state funding and is extremely reliant on the generosity of the general public and our corporate supporters. There are a number of ways that you can contribute to make sure we continue our groundbreaking work in cancer research. 

Although we are living in challenging economic times, research needs to continue if we are to positively impact cancer patient's lives. Join our fight against cancer and together we will make a difference today.

Thank you for your continued support!

How my donation will help

Our dedicated scientists are working hard to discover and develop new treatments for the poorest prognosis cancers, but they need your help. Your donations will go to fund our main research themes which include:

  1. Electrochemotherapy & Immunotherapy
  2. Autophagy
  3. Gene Therapy
  4. Cancer and Nutrition

Additionally, a donation can help us fund much needed supplies including:

€10 pays for 100ml of Penicillin-Streptomyces solution

Essential for the control of infection and maintaining sterile growth conditions for tumour cells in the laboratory.

€25 pays for 4x 100ml bottles if Essential Amino Acid solution

These are used for storage of cells in our -80deg. freezer, for use in the future.

€50 pays for 15 bottles of a Special Medium

Required to support the culture of tumour cells in the laboratory.

€100 pays for 50 litres of Liquid Nitrogen

Necessary to facilitate freezing tumour cell samples for long-term storage in a cancer bio-bank.

€200 pays for a kit that will isolate DNA from cells

This allows us to determine the processes happening at a genetic level in the cancer cell and will test 200 samples

€500 pays for an antibody

Used to identify and visualize the different components of the human cancer cell. Antibodies can also be used to identify specific cells of the immune system and determine their role in attacking cancer cells following treatment.

None of our research would be possible without the support of the generous public who truly are an essential part of our team.  We have many research projects to tackle different types of cancer and you support helps fund them.
