Early Diagnosis & Cancer Prevention Research

Saving lives through cancer prevention research.

Many cancers have potentially preventable causes. Furthermore, when cancer is found, outcomes are better with screening and earlier diagnosis.

In cancer prevention research, we are working across a range of cancers. We undertake research into understanding and addressing preventable causes of cancer.

We are studying:

  • early markers of diagnosis and the factors putting individuals at increased risk of cancer
  • how to optimise screening and diagnostic processes.

We are running a wide range of studies including:

  • use of aspirin to prevent cancer (CaPP3)
  • study of risk factors for cancer (COLOCOHORT)
  • studies of tools to improve diagnosis (COLODETECT)

The ultimate goal of our cancer prevention research is to prevent cancer and find it at an earlier treatable stage.
