About Us


The Cancer Treatment and Research Trust (CTRT) was founded in 1985. Our aim is to research why and how cancers develop, find better ways of detecting and monitoring cancers, and testing new treatments. CTRT funds research undertaken at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, Northwood, Middlesex; Hammersmith Hospital and Charing Cross Hospital, London.

Our mission is to improve lives through research by finding kinder, more effective treatments for cancer.
