    Machine learning to predict and prevent cancer
    "We propose to use machine learning to identify cancer risk factors and sub-groups (risk factor profiles) which can identify who is at risk of developing cancer. We will consider multiple exposures simultaneously, and use this information to predict who will develop cancer in the next 10 year period. We will also investigate whether the same factors predict survival in people with a pre-existing cancer diagnosis."
