Registered Charity No: 289297 (England & Wales).
The BACR is the largest cancer research association in the UK. It was formed in 1960 to "promote the advance of research in relation to all aspects of cancer and to encourage the exchange of information".
The Association's membership represents all aspects of clinical and experimental research. The major functions of the Association are to organize scientific meetings/workshops on cancer research within the United Kingdom, and to provide a platform for presentation of original clinical and experimental research. To fund exchanges between laboratories to encourage knowledge transfer and engender collaborations both nationally and internationally; to provide opportunities for senior investigators to undergo further training to enable them to keep abreast of new investigative/research methods and opportunities for junior investigators and research students to present their work at other meetings/conferences.
