Oracle Cancer Trust

Oracle Cancer Trust is the UK’s leading charity dedicated to funding head and neck cancer research.

Every day in the UK, 31 people are diagnosed with head and neck cancer. Head and neck is the third fastest growing cancer type nationally and the cancers and their treatments can have devastating impacts on patients’ lives, affecting the senses and basic functions such as speech, breathing and swallowing.

Oracle funds world-class research projects in imaging, drug development, targeted therapies, biology and surgery to develop treatments which will improve the chances of survival and quality of life of head and neck cancer patients.

What makes Oracle Cancer Trust different

Oracle fills a ‘research gap’; by focussing its funding on early-stage research projects, Oracle is laying the scientific and technical foundations for larger scale clinical trials, helping to bring real benefit to patients.

Because of their lack of immediate commercial benefit, funding is not always made available to these early-stage projects by larger funding bodies. Oracle’s role is vital.
