What is Pink Science?
Together we are Pink Science - our pioneering approach to breast cancer research which trusts scientific experts to help us fund the best projects, so creating the greatest potential to save and improve lives and, ultimately, to find a cure for breast cancer.
Pink Science has eight themes which reflect our research approach:
Why Pink Science?
Pink Science is at the heart of what we do. It sums up our pioneering attitude towards innovative life-saving research into breast cancer and how we fund it, as a community of scientists, supporters and people touched by breast cancer.
It’s highly responsive – we look for opportunities where the potential for real impact is the highest. And we fund them. Quickly and often. Because science moves fast.
It’s agile – we are free to fund the best scientists and research projects the scientific community believes offers the greatest potential for saving and improving the lives of women with breast cancer. No other breast cancer charity offers this agility and responsiveness, and no other cancer research charity has this single minded focus.
It’s completely open – Pink Science is broken down into eight clear areas of scientific research that mirror the cancer journey. This makes Pink Science accessible and relevant to everybody; not just scientists, but also those who fundraise and those who may benefit from its findings.
It’s inclusive – Everyone can be part of making Pink Science happen. Not just the scientist leading our ground-breaking research but supporters who run, walk, wear it pink to raise money and people touched by breast cancer by sharing their stores and experiences. Pink Science happens through the combined effort and passion that we all share, to find a cure for breast cancer.
