  • Cancer risk and prevention


Research does not only involve finding new ways to treat disease, but also discovering how we can best prevent cancer occurring in the first place. The picture shows researchers involved in the Atlantic Path Research Network, a landmark study led by Dr Louise Parker (Canadian Cancer Society Chair in Population Cancer Research) that aims to find better ways of detecting and preventing cancer by shedding light on factors affecting cancer risk.
