Digital News Team
Our digital news team – which is separate from our press office – manages the Cancer Research UK news and analysis site. These articles cover new developments in cancer research, health and policy, and cast a critical eye over coverage in the wider media.
Our news stories are often produced in collaboration with PA Media Group or other third party agencies – Cancer Research UK has full and active editorial control of this process, but the comments and opinions contained therein do not reflect those of Cancer Research UK unless explicitly stated.
If you have a query about any of these articles, you can contact the editorial team on email@example.com. Please note this address does not reach the Press Office, see above for their contact details.
