Association for International Cancer Research
Association for International Cancer Research (AICR) is a
cancer researchassociation based in the United Kingdom. It is the only charity that funds cancer research anywhere in the world.
Founded in 1979, the Association for International Cancer Research (AICR) has awarded over €125,000,000 in research grants in 25 different countries. AICR supports fundamental research into the causes, mechanisms, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer by awarding research grants and fellowships. In the year ending September 2007, AICR awarded approximately £10 million in cancer research grants of which about half were outside the UK.
AICR has a number of celebrity ambassadors including
David Tennant, Peter Capaldi, Lorraine Kellyand the Proclaimers.
The AICR Head Office is based in St Andrews, Scotland and its charitable registration is at the
Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator. The fact that it does not appear in the Charity Commissionregister sometimes leads people to assume - incorrectly - that it is not a proper charity. However, the Charity Commission only regulates charities in England and Wales.
