In the context of colon cancer prevention, the Molecular Disease Mechanisms Group (MDM) from the University of Luxembourg, invites you to “Discover the inside of your colon – Boosting cancer prevention (Inside Colon)”. Learn about the latest research on the principles of cancer development, as well as the potential role of the microbiome and immune cells in tumour development.
