Video gives insight into the future of Cancer Prevention and Early Detection

Professor Gareth Evans, Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Lead, explains how our research will help to optimise screening and preventative strategies for common cancers, with a strong inherited component (breast cancer, colorectal cancer, endometrial cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer and womb cancer).

This research is focused on helping to identify cancer risk sooner, match an individual to the preventive intervention (lifestyle changes and/or chemoprevention) most likely to work for them and, in some cases, may even help to prevent conditions progressing into cancer in the first place.
