Our research projects

Cancer Intelligence combines analytical, research, evaluation and behaviour science expertise to deliver high quality intelligence to support CRUK’s ambition to see 3 in 4 people survive their cancer for 10 years or more by 2034, and to reduce the incidence of cancer.

We collect, analyse and interpret data across the cancer pathway, both in house and in partnership with PHE.

Our research projects on the impact of COVID-19

When the UK entered “lockdown” it became clear that cancer pathways would be impacted and therefore crucial to gather and monitor the evidence. This work informs how we support cancer patients, services and pathways through the pandemic and recovery and improving outcomes for the future.
