Global Cancer Update Programme Expert Committees

Who make up the various Expert Committees, as part of the Global Cancer Update Programme, and what do they do?

As part of the updated Global Cancer Update Programme, we have identified four key areas of research focus. Each of these areas has its own Expert Committee, that will work alongside their Chair to guide and support each work area.
