Personalised Prevention Workstream

Our personalised prevention research focuses on developing and evaluating strategies to encourage healthier life-style choices in high-risk groups of people, such as stopping smoking or maintaining a healthy diet.

We are building on our strengths in screening, prevention and early diagnosis to reduce the burden of cancer on the people of Wales and beyond. We do this by conducting research which helps prevent cancer, wherever possible, which picks up abnormalities at the pre-cancerous stage or which detects cancer in its earliest stages before it can grow and spread. 

We are using population data to: 

  • Improve lung health by increasing awareness of lung cancer symptoms and encouraging people in deprived communities to seek help. 
  • Look at genetic and lifestyle factors and link these with data on bowel cancer awareness to investigate: 
    • Utilising artificial intelligence to analyse data and better understanding cancer risk and  
    • Behavioural (e.g. diet) and therapeutic (e.g. prescribing medicines) prevention strategies in colorectal cancer.
