Work streams

The Collaboration is working with relevant stakeholders to identify key research opportunities and priorities across the NIHR infrastructure, and explore opportunities for prosecuting a research agenda for the short, medium and long term.

Our work is divided into seven streams:

  1. Creating a skilled community of practice
  2. Molecular Mechanisms: Experimental to first-in-man
  3. Population Health: Cancer prevention and early detection
  4. Nutritional Care in People Living With and Beyond Cancer
  5. Nutrition in Children, Teenagers and Young Adults with Cancer
  6. Characterising nutritional status in cancer
  7. Opportunities for engagement with the commercial sector

We also have a Patient and Public Involvement reference panel, which is central to the work of the NIHR Cancer and Nutrition Collaboration. The panel provides expertise from the perspective of patients, carers and the members of the public affected by cancer in the context of research in cancer and nutrition.
