Why support us? Supporter stories Cancer prevention expert Prof Alan Jackson Prof Jackson is chair of World Cancer Research Fund’s Continuous Update Project (CUP) panel. The CUP panel features independent experts in a variety of disciplines and provides an impartial analysis and interpretation of the evidence prepared by a research team at Imperial College London. It’s a huge undertaking – at present, over 100 scientists from 17 countries around the world are involved in the CUP. I’ve also spoken at or chaired a number of conferences on behalf of World Cancer Research Fund International. My sense is that the charity is on the threshold of playing a major, if not dominant, role globally in helping to inform the way in which people live their lives.
