On Cancer

Our publication On Cancer provides expert analysis and thought leadership on cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

1 in 2 people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Thanks to brilliant advancements in screening and treatment, half of these will survive their disease for ten years or more. But we still have a long way to go, with huge inequalities in outcomes between cancer patients from the most and least deprived areas.

The articles in On Cancer explore how the disease interacts with existing health and economic inequalities, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also examines the role data and AI can play in cutting waiting times and improving outcomes, and highlights the pioneering work into new treatments and diagnostic tools being carried out in the Greater Manchester region.
