Groundbreaking method to review mechanistic research on lifestyle factors & cancer
We have teamed up with the University of Bristol to increase understanding of the links between diet, weight, physical activity and cancer

Globally, there is currently no standardised way to review the vast amount of research on the mechanisms by which lifestyle factors can cause cancer. This innovative new work offers a comprehensive and systematic way of collating and reviewing such research, will help identify the gaps in our knowledge about the mechanisms, and inform the direction of future research.
In addition, an online tool has been developed to automate part of the process. This online web-based tool will enable scientists from around the world to identify and visually display the mechanistic studies by specific exposure and outcome.
