Cancer Research UK has funded a collaborative project between Swansea and Cardiff Universities to exploit oncotropic bacteria for early detection of colorectal cancer. The appointee will join the Swansea team but is expected to assist with research at both locations. The teams at both sites have been collaborating for a few years developing microbial cancer therapy. This new project will explore how to extend the use of the technology to provide an accurate test for precancerous lesions.  This would prevent unnecessary diagnostic endoscopy and reduce waiting times, resulting in earlier detection and improved clinical outcomes for patients.
