Organisation profile

Our work is in cancer epidemiology, health services research, health policy and global health. Studies on aetiology, risk factors, biological mechanisms and other aspects of cancer occurrence contribute to the understanding of causes of cancer and to cancer prevention in the general population. Studies of prognosis, outcomes and survivorship in cancer patients contribute to the understanding of cancer care, including early detection, treatment and organisation of cancer services.  National and international studies of variation in cancer occurrence, care and outcomes contribute policy-relevant information, both nationally and internationally. Cancer policy and global health study global systems of cancer care, research and education to understand how these operate as complex adaptive systems and how society, technology, and political systems can deliver the best patient outcomes for countries and regions within the context of the burden of cancer and other disease.

We are partners in the Trans-Atlantic Prostate Group and the Transdisciplinary Prostate Cancer Partnership looking for prognostic biomarkers in prostate cancer. We are developing a programme of cancer prevention and health promotion in King's Health Partners Comprehensive Cancer Centre, and we collaborate with the Public Health England Cancer Registration and Analysis Service. We collaborate with colleagues in general medicine in London, Denmark and Sweden to explore cancer diagnostics and early diagnosis in primary care.   We also work with a wide global network of collaborators from specific countries – National Cancer Grid of India and National Cancer Forum of Chile – through to organisations such as Union International Cancer Control, the NCI Centre for Global Health and the International Atomic Energy Agencies Program Against Cancer (PACT).
