The Giannakis and Ogino labs have published a new study in Cancer Discovery that describes a mutational signature associated with high intake of red meat and increased colorectal cancer mortality. The team analyzed whole exome sequencing and epidemiological data from 900 CRC cases and discovered the alkylating signature, previously undescribed in CRC. Marios discusses this work in an AACR press release. The study was also covered by news organizations around the world; for example, FranceSoir, The Times of India, Aljazeera, and Yahoo News.
Dr. Caroline Young from Dr. Phil Quirke’s lab in Leeds gave the CL Oakley Lecture for the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland and was awarded the Oakley lecture medal.
