CaP's research focuses on the cancer patient's course from first symptom to start of treatment. This course includes a range of critical phases and factors that influence how fast a patient is being diagnosed and begin relevant treatment.

Early diagnosis of cancer in general practice depends on three conditions: that the citizens/patients present themselves with symptoms at an early stage (The Patient). That general practice is able to "catch" relevant symptoms and begin a quick diagnosis (The Diagnostic Process). And that there exists a compiled, established diagnostic course to confirm or deny the suspicion of cancer (The Organisation). These three factors represent CaP's overall research lines. Therefore, the CaP centre's research is essential in the strengthening of cancer treatment in Denmark.

Here you get an overview of CaP's ongoing research within each area, as well as the CaP centre's senior researchers and staff.
