To beat cancer we have to be bold and tackle the toughest questions. Two years ago we put some of those questions to researchers in the form of wide-ranging Grand Challenges. The response was amazing, and we’re now funding 4 international teams with more than £70 million over the next 5 years. But we can’t stand still and wait to see what they find. We’ve made great progress against cancer but there’s still so much we don’t know. So while our teams and others inspired by the first set of Grand Challenges are sinking their teeth into them, we’re now on the hunt for answers to a new collection. Today we’re launching phase two of our global Grand Challenge. And these are the questions we’re putting to researchers to see if they can answer them.
