Opportunity To Investigate the Microbiome’s Impact on Science and Treatment In Colorectal Cancer

A Cancer Grand Challenges project funded by Cancer Research UK.

Watch the OPTIMISTICC Webinar

A series of informal conversations between the OPTIMISTICC researchers and patient advocates discussing the role of the gut microbiome in human health and disease and its association with colorectal cancer.

 This webinar is a collaboration between Colorectal Cancer Canada, the OPTIMISTICC team, and the Cancer Research UK Cancer Grand Challenges.

About the Program

We are an international team working together to understand the colorectal cancer microbiome: what it is, how it is associated with cancer, and what treatments will affect the microbiome to promote health.

Our objectives are to:

  • Map the colorectal cancer microbiome
  • Develop microbiome-targeted therapies for colorectal cancer
  • Share and disseminate our findings
