In collaboration with Dr Rachel Midgley, Oncology Clinical Trials Office, we have conducted a series of international adjuvant trials of chemotherapy for colorectal cancer. In parallel, we have established a biorepository of tissue and constitutional DNA (n=3500) which has allowed us to collaborate with Ian Tomlinson to generate a number of cancer susceptibility SNPs  and commercial partners  to characterise a prognostic mRNA signature which assists in selection of patients for chemotherapy. We are currently developing biomarkers for the anti-angiogenic agent bevacizumab.
