Our research

Target Ovarian Cancer's medical research programme funds ovarian cancer specific research across the whole of the UK. 

Our primary research objectives are to accelerate the discovery of new life extending treatments and improve the quality of life for women with ovarian cancer. We do this by funding drug discovery, training the researchers of the future, campaigning for greater clinical trials participation and developing supportive and palliative care research.

Our research projects
Since the launch of our UK-wide research programme in 2011, we have committed over £600,000 to research with five projects funded.

Get involved
We need your help to shape our ovarian cancer research programmes. Find out how you can get involved.

Key findings
Our Pathfinder Study, conducted in 2009 and 2012, is the most comprehensive study ever undertaken into the experiences of those living and working with ovarian cancer in the UK. 

Fund our research
One woman dies every two hours from ovarian cancer in the UK. We need your help to fund vital research into new treatments.

Applying for grants
Our priority is to fund research which can help deliver real improvements for women living with ovarian cancer and develop new treatment options. Find out how to apply for a grant.
