CANCER RESEARCH DATABASE (CaRD)
NCRI Partners submit data, on a yearly basis, to the NCRI Secretariat for inclusion in the NCRI Cancer Research Database (CaRD). Every research project is classified using the Common Scientific Outline (CSO). This assigns the research to one of 7 categories:
- Aetiology (causes of cancer)
- Early Detection, Diagnosis and Prognosis
- Cancer Control, Survival, and Outcomes research
- Scientific Model Systems
Research projects are subsequently further classified according to subdivisions in these categories, and, where applicable, to tumour location in the body. More information on the Common Scientific Outline.
NCRI collates the data each year and has published several analyses. These include:
Based on analysis of the first set of data collected in NCRI CaRD in 2002, this report highlighted several topics that were less well funded than others and led to further indepth studies.
Included an analysis of the 2004 CaRD data.
This summary report, published in 2008, showed how cancer research has changed over a 5 year period (2002-2006). More information on the 5 year analysis.
We have now collected funding data for 11 consecutive years. More information on the CaRD 2002-2012 data analysis.
