Macmillan Survivorship Research Group 

The Macmillan Survivorship Research Group is based within the School of Health Sciences at the University of Southampton.

We are funded by Macmillan Cancer Support to conduct research into issues that affect survivors of cancer. Our research focuses on understanding recovery of health and well-being following cancer treatment and supporting self management of cancer related problems following treatment.

Our Ongoing Research


In light of the current situation with COVID-19 we are pausing recruitment and data collection on some of our studies.  The safety and welfare of our participants, colleagues in the NHS and the study teams are our primary concern.  Please see the individual study pages for details on the status of each study. The team is working from home in the coming weeks and if you have any questions please contact us by email on

Now more than ever, we are committed to delivering our purpose to understand what is important to people with cancer during their treatment and in the months and years afterwards.
