CRUK Early Diagnosis Sandpit Workshop
14-16 Dec 2015
Cancer Research UK’s vision is that three in four people will survive cancer by 2034. Detecting cancer earlier, when it is more likely that optimal and curative treatment can be offered, will play a major part in helping us achieve this. Diagnosing cancer earlier needs a multi-faceted approach - the discovery of early detection biomarkers, developing and implementing new screening techniques, understanding how cancer progresses through stages with and without symptoms, investigating and influencing human beliefs and behaviour, and optimising clinical practice and systems.
This workshop aims to bring together a broad and multi disciplinary group of innovative thinkerswith the aim of catalysing new approaches to detecting cancer earlier using technology.
