The UK Top 10 research priorities to help people live better with and beyond cancer were officially unveiled to the public on 6 November at the 2018 National Cancer Research Institute Conference.

You may recall our survey back in April inviting you to rank your top questions for research. Many thanks again to everyone for taking part, with your help a shortlist of 26 questions were outlined, which then went to a workshop with patients, carers and health and social care professionals in June to decide on the definitive “Top 10”. In the words of our esteemed NCRI Consumer Forum Chair, Richard Stephens, “there were tears, there were heated discussions, but in the end, we have 10 questions of importance to a large number of people living with and beyond cancer”.

With our top research priorities clearly defined thanks to your help, we can now embark on the next stage of encouraging collaboration and accelerating efforts into plugging the gap in this area of cancer research. At NCRI we are now focused on working with our partner organisations, other funders, researchers and the NHS to turn these priorities into research and patient benefit.

You can help too – please share the UK Top 10 Living With and Beyond Cancer research priorities with your local networks, communities, organisations, colleagues, family and friends. Our LWBC website includes a helpful ‘Publications & Dissemination’ section with tools to help you spread the word (blogs, video, top 10 flyer/download, press release, images, social media and more to follow).
