We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


We are a group of cancer researchers funded by Cancer
Research UK. We are based at the Universities of Leeds, Cambridge, Exeter and at University College London and together with our international collaborators we work on a project aimed at improving cancer diagnosis in primary care (

Charities like Cancer Research UK have been hit hard by the covid-19 pandemic and need our support more than ever.

Therefore, from the 29th May to the 4th of June 2021, 25 of us have pledge to tie our running shoes, don our walking boots, slip in our lycra, squeeze in our swimsuits or put on our skis and run, walk, cycle, swim or ski the physical distance between our four UK centres to raise vital funding for cancer research. This is a whooping 586 miles!!

Please support us in this endeavour and help us raise money for Cancer Research UK's amazing work to beat cancer!

Stay tuned for updates from our team during the challenge!
