We are part of the King’s Cancer Prevention Group, who recently moved to King’s, and are led by Professor Peter Sasieni. We are comprised of three groups: The Cancer Screening and Statistics Unit, the Cancer Behavioural Science Unit and the Cancer Prevention Trials Unit (CPTU). Our core funding is provided by Cancer Research UK.
The team has substantial expertise in epidemiology, clinical studies, use of routine registries and databases, as well as related statistical methodologies. Members of the group collaborate in cancer screening research internationally and have a track record of research that has changed cancer screening guidelines and policy.
The team also conducts research evaluating current approaches to screening and investigating potential new screening technologies.
