Ovarian Cancer Action and BIA

Ovarian Cancer Action and The BioIndustry Association: Working in partnership to drive discovery

Ovarian Cancer Action is proud to be working with the BioIndustry Association (BIA) as its charity partner for 2021. One woman dies in the UK from ovarian cancer every two hours and although five-year survival rates for ovarian cancer are improving, other cancers, such as breast cancer, had better survival rates two generations ago than ovarian cancer does today.

The BIA promotes an ecosystem that enables innovative life science companies to start and grow successfully and sustainably, enabling our world-leading research base to deliver healthcare solutions that can truly make a difference to people's lives. 

Together we will work towards a world where no woman dies of ovarian cancer. We will use our partnership to drive awareness of the disease, foster collaborations to drive progress, and raise funds to enable future scientific discoveries.

Join the BIA Research Relay this May

Throughout May, Ovarian Cancer Action is calling on members of the BIA to create a team of up to ten people, complete 1000km and aim to raise £1,000 along the way. Gather your colleagues, family or friends and start clocking up those kilometers in whatever way you’d like. The steps you take will help fund research that will transform the lives of women today and for generations to come. 

A relay is a team effort, just like making life-saving discoveries. Register here today.
