February is Oesophageal Cancer Awareness Month


In recognition of February being Oesophageal Cancer Awareness month, the Cancer Research UK Oxford Centre will be posting a series of blog posts on its website highlighting the contribution of Oxford researchers to global efforts aiming to tackle this disease.

In 2014 Cancer Research UK highlighted Oesophageal Cancer as one of their cancers of unmet need and made it one of their funding priorities. Since then, the Centre leadership has made a concerted effort to harness Oxford’s fundamental and translational research expertise to develop novel ways of detecting, diagnosing and treating patients with this disease.

This series of articles will summarises some of the local and national projects our researchers are leading on and contributing to, including:
