Inequalities in cancer outcomes

QUALITOP: Monitoring quality of life after immunotherapy

Developing a risk score for pancreatic cancer

This Cancer Research UK funded Programme has as its main ambition to reduce inequalities in cancer survival, ensuring that everyone, regardless of sociodemographic background, benefits from improvements in cancer care. 

This four-year ERC Horizon 2020 funded project (2020-2024), involves 13 institutions from 9 different countries and is led by the Hospices Civils de Lyon, France.

This project on pancreatic cancer was initiated in 2019, with an award from the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.

Policy research unit in cancer awareness

ROBEST: Ensuring robustness of evidence in public health research

SORT: Surgery or radiotherapy for early-stage cancer

Since 2011, we have been part of the twice awarded Policy Research Unit in Cancer Awareness, Screening and Early Diagnosis funded by the NIHR Policy Research Programme.

This three-year (2022-2025) Medical Research Council project [grant number MR/W021021/1] will improve the robustness of the outputs in public health research.

This study will compare radiotherapy versus surgery for treatment of people with early-stage cancers of the lung, oesophagus and bladder, and provide recommendations to help improve patients’ outcomes.

Past Projects

Individual and contextual deprivation

The aim of this ESRC funded project was to quantify the impact of individual and contextual levels of deprivation on excess mortality hazard.
