uAlberta receives $3 M for colorectal cancer research

November 23, 2015

A team of cancer researchers at the University of Alberta will receive $3 M over three years from the Alberta Cancer Foundation to support research on colorectal cancer. The team, led by Michael Weinfeld, aims to block the ability of cancerous tumours to repair themselves after chemotherapy or radiation treatment. “This research could make current treatment for colorectal cancer more effective and could help reduce the dosage of the current drugs we use,” said Weinfeld. uAlberta | Alberta Cancer Foundation
