Early Detection becomes one of the UK member centres of the International Cancer Early Detection (ICED) Alliance

Cancer Research UK have committed to a significant investment in early detection research through funding three Centres of Excellence and we are pleased to report that the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre Early Detection Programme has been selected, together with two other UK institutions UCL and the University of Manchester, as one of the UK member centres of the International Cancer Early Detection (ICED) Alliance. The ICED Alliance will be a unique, science-led, collaborative investment that will support early detection research and allow early detection leaders to nurture the field towards maturity.

Representing up to £40 million of investment, this initiative will bring together outstanding UK and US centres who will jointly develop a research strategy to support collaboration, infrastructure development and training across the Alliance and for the wider early detection research community. The Alliance aims to facilitate the exchange of people and resources, supporting collaborative research in cancer early detection.
