MQ Health - Macquarie University

Colorectal cancer

Another focus of cancer research within MQ Health is exploration of the cell and protein biology of colorectal cancers. By understanding these fundamental aspects of colorectal cancers, the researchers aim to produce accurate cancer diagnostics that can more precisely assess the progression of colorectal cancer, as well as less-toxic therapies for this frequently occurring cancer.

At the other end of the research pipeline, clinicians within MQ Health are developing innovative approaches to colorectal surgery for better surgical outcomes and reduced recovery time.
