OPTIMISTICC joins Colorectal Cancer Canada in Upcoming Webinar

On April 20th at 10:00 am EDT,  join Colorectal Cancer Canada and the Cancer Grand Challenges OPTIMISTICC team for a webinar and live Q&A exploring our research on Colorectal Cancer and the Microbiome.

The webinar will feature a series of informal conversations with the OPTIMISTICC researchers and patient advocates, with the aim of educating the public about the role of the gut microbiome in human health and disease and its associations with colorectal cancer. 

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
