Overview

Our aim is to stop people dying of bowel cancer. Bowel cancer, also called colorectal cancer (CRC), is the fourth most common cancer and the second most common cancer death in the UK. COLO-SPEED (Colorectal Cancer Screening Prevention Endoscopy and Early Diagnosis), funded by the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and the Parabola Foundation, is building the world’s largest platform for research in prevention and early diagnosis of bowel cancer.

Latest Studies
Colorectal Cancer Cohort Study

COLO-COHORT aims to develop a “risk stratification tool” to help determine which patients are at highest risk of having polyps or cancer; this tool will be able to be used in the future to work out which patients need to be referred to endoscopy for investigation.

Impact of COVID-19 on Endoscopy

The ICE study aims to understand the reasons why people were/are not comfortable attending endoscopy during this time, as well as exploring the decision-making and experiences of those who did choose to undergo their procedure. We will gather this information using interview as part of a qualitative research study.
