PRECISION PUBLIC HEALTH FOR MAJOR CANCERS - NOVEL APPROACHES TO BUILDING THE GENETIC, EPIGENETIC AND LIFESTYLE KNOWLEDGE BASE FOR ASSESSING RISK AND PROGNOSIS
Grant number: 1074383 | Funding period: 2015 - 2018
The Program of research seeks to increase our understanding of cancer risk. We will use our large collections of population and family-based datasets to conduct innovative analyses, improving our understanding of the roles that genetic, epigenetic and lifestyle factors play in our risk of breast, colorectal and prostate cancer. This information should allow us to better predict a person’s cancer risk, enabling public health interventions, such as screening, to be delivered more effectively and economically to those most at risk.
