Thelifepool Project will enable every woman to contribute precious drops of information into a secure ‘pool’ of data. This data will contribute to research improving women’s health. In particular, the research using this pool of data will look at better ways of screening for breast cancer, improve our understanding of how breast cancer develops and help find better ways of predicting a woman’s individual risk of developing breast cancer.
