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