SS-GCC1- Screening Study of Genetic Changes in Colorectal Cancer
the principal research objective is to form a database of tissue samples from patients with colorectal (bowel) cancer. The tissue samples that will be used for this research will have already been taken for diagnostic or therapeutic reasons. We will also be asking for consent for a research blood sample. The database will be used to improve our understanding of the molecular genetics and gene expression patterns in colorectal cancer.
