Patient-researcher meet-up in Tampere on 6.3.24 – on the topic of colorectal cancer research

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. To mark the occasion, iCAN, in collaboration with Colores – Finnish Colorectal Cancer Association, is providing an opportunity for people affected by colorectal cancer cancer, their loved ones and anyone interested in the topic to learn about research being carried out in Tampere. You are welcome to learn more, meet Professor Toni Seppälä and his research team, and have a behind the scenes tour in the research laboratory. Seppälä’s research group is particularly interested in cancer heredity and its biology, and in the development of personalised cancer treatment.
