Our Grand Challenge scientists at the National Physical Laboratory are using their expertise in measurement to draw a new map of cancer. The team hopes it will point to ways to diagnose and treat the disease.
Three new teams funded through our Grand Challenge are about to embark on research projects focusing on the microbiome, faulty genes and chronic inflammation.
We’re looking into a certain type of cancer that is diagnosed once it has already spread, and doctors can’t find where the cancer first started growing.
The first clinical trial testing Owlstone’s Breath Biopsy® technology on a range of cancer types is now open.
We asked some of our top researchers to share their personal ambitions for 2019 and the key trends that they hope to see emerge in their field.
Blood tests, breath studies and better CT scans could all help detect lung cancers earlier. We investigate the latest research that could inform lung screening.
A ’10 minute cancer test’ is big news today. The science behind the headlines is exciting, but the test is a long way from being used to diagnose cancer.
Researchers are trying to diagnose lung cancer early through screening, and studying if the benefits of early detection outweigh the harms.
Scientists are turning to crime-mapping tech as a new way to look at cancer.
