Future Research

Over the next five years, INDOX would like to support the work of Indian and Oxford researchers in those areas that are of the greatest need in India, but which are not currently being addressed, such as:

  • Research into the causes of common cancers in Indian populations.
  • Research into the impact of cancer prevention measures where resources are limited, such as low-cost screening programmes and educational programmes.
  • Research into the effectiveness of treatments which will be affordable to the majority of the Indian population, including traditional ayurvedic medicines.

INDOX is also planning a major cohort study to investigate the effects of diet and lifestyle on the risk of common diseases (particularly cancer but also ischaemic heart disease, diabetes and stroke) in people of South Asian origin in the UK.  See  The 'British Asians' Health Study’ for further informaton.
