We have formed an international collaboration to accelerate research in the early detection of cancer including:
Cancer Research UK – the largest independent funder of cancer research globally
The Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health & Science University – a leader in precision cancer medicine
The Canary Center at Stanford – founded in 2009 as the first research center in the world, entirely dedicated to cancer early detection
The goal of this unique trans-Atlantic agreement is to find lethal cancers as they are forming so they can be treated more effectively. Survival increases significantly when the disease is treated at an early stage.
The collaboration also seeks to accelerate progress by breaking down barriers for scientists, including:
A lack of cohorts of sufficient size and a shortage of clinical samples available for research
Development and deployment of new technologies
Lack of understanding of the biology of early cancer and technologies to detect its features The 2021 conference will unite the brightest minds in cancer research to discuss and debate some of the greatest issues in the field. Our multidisciplinary programme combines expertise from across the breadth of cancer research and career stages, together with insights from allied disciplines, to spark new opportunities for collaborative research.
