The Oxford Centre for Early Cancer Detection (OxCODE) is committed to open, fair and transparent communications with its members.

The OxCODE committees comprise representatives from across the breadth of Oxford’s early cancer detection research. These representatives are tasked with not only advocating for their area of expertise but also acting as ambassadors for OxCODE to expand the reach of our network.

Through these committees, OxCODE provides a forum for setting and reviewing Oxford’s strategic priorities in early cancer detection research and for developing a range of initiatives to support the realisation of OxCODE’s vision.
