Canary Center joins new International Alliance (ACED) aiming to detect the (almost) undetectable

October 21, 2019

Developing radical new strategies and technologies to detect cancer at its earliest stage is the bold ambition of a new transatlantic research alliance, announced today (Monday) by Cancer Research UK and partners. The International Alliance for Cancer Early Detection (ACED) is a partnership between Cancer Research UK, Canary Center at Stanford University, the University of Cambridge, the OHSU Knight Cancer InstituteUCL, and the University of Manchester.

"Continued greater investments into early cancer detection and prognostication are needed worldwide and this new alliance will bring great opportunities for truly transformative approaches to be jointly conceived, tested, and deployed.

Our greatest chances in winning the war against cancer lie in tackling the front-end of the cancer problem and not after cancer is more widespread and heterogeneous."
