Gina was told she had bowel cancer in 2005. "I was afraid at first to talk to my doctor. After 5 years I was all-clear. If you see early signs go to the GP"
Our research on bowel cancer
Help us beat cancer sooner
We receive no government funding for our research. Our life-saving work relies on the money you give us.
The importance of early diagnosis
Developing liquid biopsies
As bowel cancer grows, bits of the tumour can break off in the bloodstream. Prof Caroline Dive is collecting and analysing this ‘cellular debris’ to work out how best to treat patients.
Tracking down the 'bowel cancer gene'
Our researchers helped to discover APC - a gene responsible for hereditary bowel cancer.
Our strategy to beat cancer sooner
Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.Our new strategy will give us the foundations we need to tackle the challenges ahead.
