Meet the Researcher

Our cancer researchers focus on understanding how this disease develops and progresses. They aim to identify new targets to help diagnose cancer earlier and improve treatment options.

Patient Voice in Cancer Research

This initiative began in 2016 with the aim of actively engaging cancer patients, cancer researchers and others (patient advocates, families, carers, healthcare professionals and policy-makers) in discussions and decision-making processes that positively impact on cancer research and outcomes for patients.

Our vision is to build connections between patients and cancer researchers. We provide education and training for patients and cancer researchers to improve communication and ensure that cancer research is seen as a joint venture to overcome the disease and improve quality of life during and post treatment.


Open to partnerships with organisations, charities, groups and individuals who want to advance patient involvement in cancer research. More
