The research we carry out increases our understanding of the psychosocial effects of cancer on daily life. By managing its impact we can improve health outcomes and help people live well.

Part of Health science

We work closely with people affected by cancer as well as healthcare professionals, commissioners, policymakers and charities. Their insights help us identify the evidence to deliver patient-centred care. Our research involves people at increased risk of cancer, those living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis, care-givers and health workers. We consider all aspects of health and well-being, including the physical, psychological, social, spiritual, cultural, and financial consequences of cancer.

I'm passionate about understanding how people are affected by cancer and its treatment, and ensuring our research makes a real difference to people’s lives.
Professor of Psychosocial Oncology
Understanding the needs and experiences of people living with cancer is critical to ensuring they get the right support at the right time to maximise wellbeing and quality of life.
The integration of medical and social sciences provides new ways of understanding challenges in healthcare, allowing the identification and development of innovative health care solutions.
