CRUK and Cambridge Centre for Early Detection Event

The CRUK Cambridge Centre Early Detection Programme, launched in 2016, is a truly multidisciplinary programme focusing on research into the earlier detection of cancer. World class researchers are engaged in a variety of projects with the aim of better understanding the biology of the disease and developing methods to detect it at an earlier stage, with the ultimate goal of reducing the number of deaths caused by cancer.


For this networking event we have invited Dr Ranjit Manchanda, of the Barts Cancer Institute Centre for Experimental Cancer Medicine.

Dr Manchanda and his team recently published an article in Journal of the National Cancer Institute suggesting that screening the entire population for breast and ovarian cancer gene mutations, as opposed to just those at high-risk of carrying this mutation, is cost effective and could prevent more ovarian and breast cancers than the current approach.

Dr Ranjit Manchanda,
Ranjit Manchanda is a Clinical Senior Lecturer at Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London, and Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist at Barts and the Royal London Hospital, London, UK. Following training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology in East of England (Cambridge), he completed his PhD in gynaecological oncology at UCL and Clinical training in gynaecological oncology from UCLH and St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London. Ranjit’s research interests are focused around population based germline testing and precision medicine approaches for risk prediction, stratification, as well as targeted screening & cancer prevention.
