Professor Alan Clarke at Cardiff University is studying how bowel cancer develops. His research focuses on the role of the APC gene, which is found to be faulty in many cases of bowel cancer.

This important work could lead to improvements in diagnosis and treatment of this disease.

The principal interest of Professor Clarke and his laboratory lies in understanding the pathogenesis of disease, with specific focus on genes involved in the very early stages of divergence from normality.
