Brief description Colorectal cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Chronic inflammation is recognized as a predisposing factor for the development of colon cancer, but the molecular mechanisms linking inflammation and tumourigenesis have remained elusive. Our work will dissect the cellular and molecular circuitry that leads to tumourigenesis and investigate interventions aimed to significantly slow or prevent tumour formation. This work will have significant implications for treatments of intestinal inflammation and colon cancer.
