PI Contribution Data and samples from clinical trials were made available to Oxford-based research being undertaken within the collaboration.
Impact Whole genome SNP typing: 318,000 tagging SNPs derived from Phase 1 HapMap data have been genotyped in VICTOR and QUASAR2 patients. Targeted SNP genotyping: preliminary analysis results. Tumour specific factors: preliminary results of diagnostic profile of somatic markers. Single discipline: oncology.

Description Cancer Centre Open Day Oxford 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an open day or visit at my research institution
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact Approximately 400 members of the public attended an Open Day and short talks were held, these were attended by approximately 50 people. These were extremely interactive with many questions from the audience.

Formal feedback was collected and the event will be repeated, with extra focus on targetting local schools.
