We believe that high quality medical research holds the key to devastating diseases and conditions, such as bowel cancer, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and IBS.
Through our PhD studentship programme we aim to provide young talented scientists with the type of study experience they need to open the doors to rewarding and challenging careers and become our future experts.
The many genetic differences in bowel cancer tumours from patient to patient make them difficult to treat. Can we deliver a genetic tool to better study these and advance treatment?Read more
Advanced bowel cancer has poor survival rates. This study aims to better understand the mechanisms behind how cancer spreads around the body.Read more
How does the BRAF gene mutation drive the development of colorectal cancer and how can we improve outcomes for these patients?Read more
The first in depth analysis of resident memory T cells (Trm) and their role in Inflammatory Bowel Disease.Read more
Can healthy tissue be engineered to replace that damaged by Ulcerative Colitis?Read more
Our new PhD seeks to understand how nutrient sensing changes at a molecular level in obese humans.Read more
Our new PhD aims to establish the relationship between IBS and EDS in order to improve care.Read more
Our new PhD aims to develop our understanding of why individual patients respond differently to treatment for rectal cancer.Read more
Our new PhD aims to improve treatments for babies born with Hirschprung's, a rare but life threatening bowel condition.Read more
Our PhD student Michael Tranter is using insights from our Crohn's pain project to investigate better treatment for pain in Ulcerative ColitisRead more
Our PhD student, Valentina Passananti, is supporting people with IBS to find effective ways to self manage their condition.Read more
Our PhD student, Danny Legge, is investigating a possible role for aspirin to improve how patients respond to the treatment they receive after surgery.Read more
Our PhD student, Hannah Bolland, is examining areas of tumours that are low in oxygen because these are hard to treat and so more dangerous.Read more
Our PhD student, Hannah Shailes, aims to pinpoint new therapies by researching a mutation in the gene Adenomatis Polyposis Coli (APC).Read more
