What do we do with the data we hold for the purposes of our research studies?

We undertake research with a focus on screening, prevention and diagnosis of bowel cancer. We aim to provide high quality evidence to underpin health policy changes. To achieve this aim, we have carried out, or are carrying out, a number of UK-wide clinical trials which are testing ways to reduce the numbers of people being diagnosed with, and dying from, bowel cancer.

Our team uses statistical methods to look for trends in the data which will help improve our ability to prevent people developing bowel cancer, as well as improving survival if someone is diagnosed with this disease.
