Gap Analysis in Breast Surgery Published
The 2013 Breast Cancer Campaign gap analysis established breast cancer research priorities without a specific focus on surgical research or the role of surgeons on breast cancer research. This Review aims to identify opportunities and priorities for research in breast surgery to complement the 2013 gap analysis. Click here for more information

Award for ICPV Member
Many congratulations to ICPV member Margaret Grayson. On 21 April 2018 she received the Iris Colvin Lifetime Achievement Award for Health, presented by the Women’s Forum of Northern Ireland. This is very well deserved for her tireless work in furthering cancer research especially in Northern Ireland.
Warwick Clinical Trials
12 members of ICPV attended a residential Clinical Trials Course at the University of Warwick from 17th to 19th April 2018. The course was run by Professor Janet Dunn and covered the different types of studies undertaken; consent; trial design; statistics and bringing a drug to market. One of the highlights of the course was a visit to the West Midlands Surgical Training Centre where delegates had the privilege of seeing real body parts and having basic anatomy explained to them by the team. The delegates would like to thank Professor Janet Dunn for her outstanding enthusiasm and for her generous hospitality.
Open letter calling on Government to prioritise interests of cancer patients in Brexit negotiations
ICPV have come together with 18 other cancer charities to put our names to an open letter to Government. We want Government to prioritise seeking continued alignment with the EU drug licensing
process and Clinical Trials Regulation after Brexit. It is hoped this letter will be published in the national press in the near future.
