FORCE continues to fund an on-going and extremely productive programme of cancer research in Exeter. The results have been published internationally and widely presented at conferences both at home and abroad. The research has lead to considerable scientific collaboration and has attracted further external funding. Probably most importantly, the research studentships funded by FORCE provide vital training for cancer researchers of the future. We are realistic about what we can achieve but we know our funding stimulates research locally that can have much wider benefits.
FORCE-funded research is directed and supervised by a team of scientists and clinicians, all of whom are researchers with the University of Exeter Medical School. The involvement of both basic scientists and consultant physicians ensures that the research is not only scientifically rigorous but also, importantly, that it is clinically relevant. This exciting work currently involves two doctoral students, researching into two major areas.
