One in two of us will get cancer during our lifetime, and cancer is the leading cause of death across the UK. We are contributing to addressing this local, national and international health challenge through a range of programmes spanning research, data and improvement science.

We host DATA-CAN: The Health Data Research Hub for Cancer, a UK-wide initiative that aims to unlock the power of health data to improve cancer care.

Through the cancer programme of our Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC), we bring together world-leading research and clinical expertise with the aim of transforming early diagnosis and ensuring that all people living with cancer have access to the full range of treatment, therapy and care options of a world class cancer system.
