A University of Otago researcher wants to improve the quantity and quality of life for Māori with cancer.

Dr Jason Gurney has been awarded nearly $500,000 to identify strategies to do so.

Over the next four years, he aims to identify cancers which require the most urgent attention in terms of survival outcomes.

He also aims to propose key investments required to improve outcomes for Māori.
