The Charity that fills the Gap

There is a pressing need for funds for new research projects and clinical trials to help in our efforts to beat cancer. The Clerk Maxwell Cancer Research Fund fulfils an important research and development role in the fight against cancer, by helping to provide that all important initial funding (often called seed-corn funding) that allows a project to get off the ground.


Leading oncologists and radiologists working in Scotland highlight substantial underfunding in the area in which this Fund focuses.
