Gastrointestinal Cancer Research

Investigating translational aspects of gastrointestinal oncology.

Alex Boussioutas Group

Professor Alex Boussioutas's research team investigates translational aspects of gastrointestinal oncology. Research disciplines span population health and epidemiology of gastric and colorectal cancer, integrative genomic analysis of gastric and oesophageal cancer, cell biology of invasion and metastasis with respect to the tumour microenvironment, early detection and biomarkers of gastric cancer and genetic aspects of gastrointestinal malignancies.

The team is currently engaged in a number of research areas, mainly in understanding cellular and molecular aspects of upper gastrointestinal cancers like gastric cancer and oesophageal adenocarcinoma. Alex also has an interest in screening and prevention of colorectal cancer, particularly in high risk populations, such as those with hereditary predisposition.
