In partnership with Policy@Manchester and The University of Manchester, we have developed On Cancer which is our latest exemplar demonstrating team science research carried out in Manchester. It spotlights the evidence on which to base future policy implementations. From pioneering early detection, and equal access of screening and treatments, to our use of cutting-edge technologies, our one Manchester partnership strives to create a future free from the burden of cancer.
We speak to some of our researchers on their work to improve the lives of people living with cancer. For this research to reach its greatest potential, we require engagement from everyone; from policy makers to nurses, funders academics, and industry to dynamically shift the way we treat cancer, overcome barriers in screening, enable our researchers to utilise patient data and address funding shortfalls. On Cancer not only provides detailed and real-world evidence but also outlines clear policy recommendations that, if implemented, will improve the lives of those living with cancer.
