Cancer research in the UK will get a boost under a new scheme funded by government and charitable organisations.
The £19 million investment will see four 'e-Health research' Centres of Excellence established in London, Manchester, Dundee and Swansea.
These virtual centres will be made up of researchers who will become experts at analysing UK health data and finding ways to use the data to improve patient care and public health.
The Centres will focus on conditions including cancer, diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
