Role of the microbiome in Gastrointestinal cancers

Seminar Date: March 27, 2017 Theme:Cancer

Bacteria that live inside our bodies – known as the microbiome – have become a hot topic in biomedical science over the last few years, with significant evidence suggesting they play central roles in health and disease.

In this seminar, two experts discuss the role of the microbiome in gastrointestinal cancers, which include cancers of the bowel, pancreas and liver amongst others – and the potential for further research into these bacteria to lead to better treatment methods for patients.
