Project Details


  1. peripheral blood biomarkers that indicate or quantify an individual's risk for developing CRC or other cancers, specifically, risk associated SNPs and measuring DNA methylation of white blood cell DNA as a marker of cancer risk
  2. tumour biomarkers that indicate a relative maybe at an increased risk of developing CRC
