Group of Prof. Andrea Gsur

TRANSCOLONCAN participants from Austria, has received funding from the Austrian Research Promotion Agency along with the MyBioma company for the project "Gut MICRObiome-based approach for incorporating new biomarkers into COLOrectal cancer screening" (MICROCOLO). Within this project, predictive microbiome-based signatures specific for colorectal cancer and high-risk adenomas will be defined by multivariate statistical modelling. Harnessing such knowledge of the microbiota should contribute to new preventive strategies and diagnostics of colorectal cancer.
