Knowledge exchange cross cutting strand
Lead: Dr Athene Lane
The programme will lead to the identification of potentially modifiable targets and predictive biomarkers that will in-turn enable the development of interventions to be tested in RCTs or the formulation of rigorous evidence-based clinical guidelines.
The translation of robust findings about causal associations will take advantage of a range of resources for knowledge transfer, including the BRTC (Lane), NIHR Bristol Biomedical Research Centre BRC, Bristol Health Partners; the Collaboration for Leadership In Applied Health Research and Care – West (Donovan), Elizabeth Blackwell Institute, the NIHR School for Public Health Research and the Tobacco and Alcohol Research Group (Munafò). The Biomedical Research Centre has a cancer workpackage led by Richard Martin that takes key findings from this programme into feasibility studies that could then lead to RCTs.
