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

A Cancer Grand Challenges project funded by Cancer Research UK.


March Is Colorectal Cancer Awareness month and we asked the advocates to discuss their journeys. March 5th was Dress in Blue Day and the team celebrated at our team meeting.

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
