The research tools you create can have long-term impact, even if they don’t have any clinical or drug development potential. Your research tools are valuable to other likeminded cancer scientists, assisting the progression of new discoveries and supporting our shared mission of accelerating cancer research globally. Contributing your research tools can provide multiple advantages to both you and other scientists worldwide.
Progress in cancer research has always been dependent on the generosity and willingness from scientists to make their unique materials available to their colleagues – in-fact the peer review process to confirm new results is based on this very notion. Stemming from a spirit of contribution and collaboration, the CancerTools.org initiative leans closely to these values to help drive cancer research discoveries.
For scientists to be able to continually make progressions in the field, accessibility to the best research tools is crucial. Making your research tools available through the CancerTools.org portfolio grants this accessibility, enhances the influence of ongoing research, and allows other scientists to benefit from them across a range of cancer research areas. Your contribution ultimately supports the acceleration of discoveries and the ways in which we understand cancer globally.
“Good science needs the best research tools to carry it out. It is paramount that these research tools are widely and easily available to scientists so that we can maximise the opportunity for breakthroughs. At CancerTools.org, we are proud to be supporting cancer research by making these tools accessible to any scientist that needs them” Robert Bondaryk, CancerTools.org Global Head

CancerTools.org, the research tools arm of Cancer Research UK, is a non-profit, global community of cancer researchers, academic institutes and societies, with a shared mission to accelerate cancer research discoveries. In this collaborative, researchers contribute research tools and share knowledge to deepen our understanding of cancer, and drive innovation within cancer research.
