This month, our Stratified Medicine Programme starts recruiting patients and we launch nine high tech gene projects, while researchers in the US find a way to target a key protein involved in cancer.

A study shows that increasing surgery rates for lung cancer could significantly improve survival, and the biggest report to date on lifestyle and cancer pins more than 100,000 cancers a year on preventable causes. And finally, we celebrate the bravery of our Little Stars – children all over the UK who have been diagnosed with cancer.
