Better, Kinder Cancer Treatments

Our scientists are leading innovative cancer research with the potential to save countless lives.

From shrinking tumours, to developing quick, painless diagnostic tests, we’re developing world-class technologies of the future. The targeted therapies our scientists are pioneering are designed to be more effective, with fewer side-effects than conventional medicines. While treatments like chemotherapy damage both cancerous and healthy cells, making patients feel very unwell, some of our targeted innovations would attack only the cancerous ones.

Swansea University has a proud research history. In the 2020 Research Excellence Framework, 90% of our research was rated either world-leading or internationally excellent. As we enter the next 100 years as a university, you can help us advance the discoveries that will change the world.
