We will continue the search for “low risk genes”. Once identified, we will study how they interact with each other and with lifestyle and environmental factors to alter risk. We hope this research might eventually lead to the development of simple tests for cancer risk, which may result in new types of screening and prevention measures.
We have developed collaborations with many other research groups that are carrying out similar studies around the world. Together we are coordinating the research to maximise the chances of success. N.B. In order to preserve confidentiality we do not share identifiable information about individuals.
