Hi, I’m Hannah. Bowel cancer still takes the life of nearly 1 in 2 people diagnosed. This must change, that’s why I’m a researcher for Bowel & Cancer Research. Please help fund equipment for my lab.
The final year of my PhD is approaching and the kit I use will cost £4,200, that’s about £81 per week. Can you help me this festive season and make a donation to my lab? Together we can save lives. Thank you.
Many bowel cancers have mutations in the gene known as Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC). Mutations in this gene are very common, occurring in 80% of sporadic bowel cancer patients. APC is also responsible for an inherited form of bowe lcancer called Familial Adenomatous Polyposis, (FAP). When mutations in APC exist, other genes become vital for bowel cancer cells to thrive. My aim is to identify which genes these are, and pinpoint drugs that can curb cell survival. This will improve treatment for patients.
