Abstract

Bowel cancer can be prevented by regular screening, however screening is not targeted to those most at risk and only 30% take up the offer. My research will determine how effective genetic testing of the general population might be as an innovative approach to target screening to those most at risk. I will use data from existing and funded studies that I lead, and will collaborate with colleagues in my research team that have the necessary expertise in this area, to address this question issue.
