UKTCPN brings together a unique blend of expertise for research in cancer chemoprevention including scientists, clinicians, epidemiologists, statisticians and specialists in primary care, diet and nutrition.
The group is pulling together chemoprevention and drug re-purposing research teams within the UK to help develop a radical new approach to make prevention studies more cost-effective and targeted.
The group will be running a session at the 2015 NCRI to demonstrate how this approach will develop a pipeline of studies which links epidemiology to biomarkers and mechanisms of action and tackles issues such as expertise for formulation and studying re-purposed agents.

Membership is drawn from clinical and non-clinical researchers across the United Kingdom who have an interest, and demonstrated research activity, in a relevant subject area.
Ordinary membership of the Group is available to researchers at all stages of their career.
Membership is also open to members of organisations such as cancer charities, and to lay people or patients who have an interest in this field.
