The London-based charity is making one of its largest trial investments to date

The Cancer Research UK, a charitable organization in the UK focusing on cancer research & healthcare, has offered funds worth £4.5 million for the Cancer Research UK Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) in Scotland after assessing a review report of all its clinical trial units.

According to BBC News, scientists at the Glasgow University based center have been carrying out extensive research since long to unearth new ways of treating patients with lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, brain tumors, and prostate cancers to improve the rate of patient survival. One of the researchers working at the firm has stated that subjects diagnosed with pancreatic cancer send their tumor cells to the CTU lab for genetic testing. They're a vital part of the charity's research network, helping shape the clinical research landscape in the United Kingdom and internationally.

The funding boost will be used across Britain with old and new meds as well as combos, with a focus on difficult-to-treat cancers and those that affect children.
