"To tackle cancer you need the best brains, the best ideas and the best facilities. However, without the best young talent, there can be no future. If you want to win the premier league, you have to have the top players. CRANES has been very farsighted in adopting this philosophy and has given generously in pursuit of this aim. By supporting local research, they have ensured that the best research in the North East is competing on an equal footing with other teams in the UK. This will translate into direct benefit for our population, in addition to benefitting humanity generally."
