Brief description 1 in 12 Australians will develop colorectal cancer. Here we use information about changes to the genetic (inherited) material of these cancers to develop new, complex models of this disease. This teaches us about what those changes do, and highlights important targets for future drug therapies. We are also developing a better test to detect hidden pre-cancers that are not well detected by our current population screening strategy, to help reduce deaths from this disease.
