Cancer Research UK Joins OHSU in Collaboration to Improve Early Detection of Cancer

Cancer Research UK and the Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health & Science University have formed an international collaboration to accelerate research in the early detection of cancer. The goal of this unique transatlantic agreement is to fill the urgent need for better methods to find lethal cancers as they are forming so that they can be treated more effectively. A patient's chance of survival increases significantly if the disease is diagnosed and treated at an early stage. The collaboration also seeks to accelerate progress by identifying and tackling the barriers for scientists, including: a lack of research models for the earliest stages of the disease; a shortage of tissue samples available for research, especially samples from higher risk patients; Limited funding for this type of research; and the need for a better understanding of the biology of early cancer and appropriate technologies to detect its features.
