Presented by: Young Caroline
In this talk, Caroline will introduce the CRUK Grand Challenge team “OPTIMISTICC” which is investigating over the next 5 years the mechanisms and therapeutic potential of the CRC-associated microbiome.
She will then discuss the results from two recently published studies, one showing the CRC screening potential of the faecal microbiome, and the other investigating the CRC-associated microbiome of non-Western countries.
