Project leader: Dr Gurdeep Mannu, NIHR Clinical Lecturer

Breast cancer is the commonest cancer in women in the UK and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is its commonest pre-invasive form.

Gurdeep’s research uses large datasets from routine data sources, bespoke observational studies, and randomised trials to better understand the epidemiology and optimal treatment of breast cancer.

The results of his research will help to:

  • identify ways to prevent pre-invasive and subsequent invasive breast cancer,
  • improve surveillance of women after breast cancer,
  • translate existing research into the clinic, and
  • streamline randomised trials to improve treatments for future breast cancer patients.

The research will also provide doctors and patients with improved information on the likely outcomes from various treatments to help in treatment decision-making.
