Lung cancer


The Story

Lung cancer is the most prevalent cancer in the world with 1.3 million deaths recorded each year.  The disease retains a poor prognosis mainly due to the failure to develop a robust screening programme.  Wales in the UK is a hot spot for lung cancer and our work aims to provide a highly novel insight into factors linked to the development of lung cancer which throws lights into the basis pathology of the disease as well as suggesting a new screening tool.
