Our Cancer Prevention and Early Detection theme aims to:
- Reduce the inequalities associated with cancer prevention and early detection by identifying those populations in Greater Manchester at highest cancer risk.
- Establish and validate rules to predict cancer risk, using NHS registers of at risk individuals.
- Develop personalised approaches to select the most appropriate preventive therapy and/or lifestyle interventions for an individual.
- Reduce the number of patients diagnosed with late-stage cancers in Greater Manchester by improving and developing new early detection methods.
