Past research projects

Research is vital. It can hold the key to improving the lives and outcomes of people diagnosed with lung cancer. Right from the start, Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation has been dedicated to this core objective. Since we were founded in 1990, we have spent over £30 million on research so that those living with lung cancer can expect better.

Over the years, we have worked with researchers from all over the UK and Ireland, funding ground-breaking projects such as our Lung Health MOT schemes in Nottingham. These helped pave the way for the roll out of similar lung health checks across England, which may save many lives by detecting lung cancer at an early stage.  

Here, we look back at some of the projects we have funded – with your help and support.
