Bowel cancer research grant26th March 2008
Scientists at the University of Aberdeen have been awarded a grant of £105,000 to try to find new ways of diagnosing and treating bowel cancer.
The research will focus on examining proteins in bowel cancer cells and use pioneering technology called proteomics to look for changes in proteins at various stages of tumour growth.
Figures show that some 3,500 people are diagnosed every year in Scotland with bowel cancer. The funding for the research has come from the Association for International Cancer Research.
