Accelerating cancer research

NCRI has a number of different strands of work to accelerate cancer research.

Beyond the Horizon

Beyond the Horizon is a new meeting series that aims to facilitate knowledge-sharing and generate dialogue across disciplines with a view of accelerating progress in cancer-related research.

Clinical Studies Groups

The NCRI Clinical Studies Groups provide a forum for cancer researchers to develop trials and build a strategic portfolio within their area of expertise

Clinical Trials Units Group

Clinical trials units (CTUs) play a pivotal role in delivering UK research, from the design and delivery of trials, to analysis and publication of results.

Living With and Beyond Cancer

NCRI’s Living With and Beyond Cancer (LWBC) initiative aims to increase the level of research in this area to help improve the quality of life of people affected by cancer.

Pathology (CM-Path)

The CM-Path programme, brings together experts from pathology and other fields to build a stronger base of people and resources for the UK to undertake pathology research

Radiotherapy (CTRad)

NCRI’s Clinical and Translational Radiotherapy Research Working Group (CTRad) brings together UK experts to provide national leadership and support the development of radiotherapy research.

Surgical research in cancer

Surgery is an important part of many cancer patients’ journeys, and the NCRI 2008–2013 strategic plan raised concerns about the UK’s capacity to undertake surgical research
