The Cancer Policy Research Centre (CPRC) undertakes and funds high quality, high impact research across the cancer pathway to influence cancer policy and practice. Headed by Dr Jyotsna Vohra, the CPRC has recently expanded its focus beyond cancer prevention.

Formally known as the Policy Research Centre for Cancer Prevention (PRCP), the CPRC’s research has delivered on multiple research studies and from these produced many influential publications. All have contributed towards Cancer Research UK’s goal of accelerating progress towards beating cancer together.
