Our Vision is to create and implement a personalised approach to colorectal cancer screening to reduce the number of new cases and deaths.

We will do this by bringing new evidence to existing screening pathways, and ensuring the best use of health resources.  We have formed a team of experts in clinical and non-clinical sciences:

(a) to develop the first personalised colorectal cancer risk tool that incorporates all known genetic, pathology, family history, lifestyle factors and personal characteristics, and

(b) to develop proven methods for implementing these tools into clinical practice.
