AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Are microbial tumor characteristics predictive of cancer treatment effects and survival?

Microbiota has been found in tumor tissues and these communities are often found to differ from the neighboring healthy tissue. Current studies tend to be small and from single cancer centers. We propose collecting tumor samples for microbial analysis in conjunction with cancer treatment data to evaluate microbial characteristics which predict successful treatment. Comparisons can be made to evaluate microbial compositions... more »
