Breast Cancer Now works in Scotland from an office in Edinburgh and has research projects in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee. We are the leading breast cancer charity in Scotland dedicated to stopping women dying from breast cancer. Our aim is that by 2050, no one will die from breast cancer.
Over 4,600 women and 28 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in Scotland each year. It is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women and around 1,000 people in Scotland die from the disease every year.
Health is a devolved issue and many decisions about breast cancer in Scotland are driven by Scottish-based bodies. So by having a dedicated, physical presence in Scotland, we can champion the needs of all breast cancer patients throughout the United Kingdom.
To realise this, we fund cutting-edge research into the disease in Scotland, collaborating with the brightest researchers and foremost organisations from around the world. In Scotland we support 21 scientists, working on research projects in locations such as Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling.Address:
