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, 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, the Tobacco and Alcohol Research Group (Munafò) and the Section of Evidence Synthesis and Classification at IARC. 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.
