Both CRUK and DBT will invest five million pounds each in this five-year pilot project and seek further investment from other potential funding partners.

The India-UK Cancer Research Initiative will identify a core set of research challenges that address issues of affordability, prevention, and care of cancer patients by bringing together leading Indian and UK experts in clinical research, demographic research, new technologies, and physical sciences, the statement said.
