Principal Investigator: Dr Maria Alcolea

Funded by: Worldwide Cancer Research, 2019

Dr Maria Alcolea at the University of Cambridge, England, wants to uncover new ways to diagnose oesophageal cancer early, when the patient has the best chance of survival. To do this, her team are studying the molecular processes that occur as oesophageal cancer develops. Through this work, they hope to identify molecular markers that can be used to detect oesophageal cancer as early as possible. Read more
