The Research

Recent research has shown that a specific group of gut bacteria leaves a signature on bowel cancer tumours – providing evidence that this group of bacteria causes some bowel cancers.

Associate Professor Daniel Buchanan believes this group of gut bacteria may be responsible for the development of bowel cancer in younger people. In this project, A/Prof Buchanan and his team will determine how the gut bacteria causes bowel cancer in younger adults by identifying molecular signatures in tumour samples and in samples from the bowel lining of young adults
