Bridging the preclinical-clinical boundary

The preclinical-clinical boundary is a key checkpoint in the translational pathway for research. It refers to the point at which preclinical evidence is considered sufficient to merit the move to first-in-human clinical studies, and represents a significant escalation in both resourcing and time, with a high risk of failure. Therefore there is a drive to ensure that the evidence base for progression into clinical studies is as robust and predictive as possible to maximise the chances of success and minimise risk of failure.

Early detection and diagnosis research in cancer

One of the key ways to improve cancer outcomes is to detect and diagnose at an earlier stage when cancers are far more treatable. However, a limitation to the earlier diagnosis of some cancers is the lack of technologies that can detect very early indicators of disease. This means research into novel tests and innovations, and the rapid implementation of effective interventions into the healthcare system, are crucial.
