A GRANT of more than $34,000 will help a Har­ris­dale res­i­dent in his quest to find bet­ter ways to treat bowel cancer pa­tients.

Dr Chi­dozie Anyaegbu’s fund­ing of $34,688 will be used to iden­tify bowel cancer pa­tients who are at a high risk of the cancer re­turn­ing after chemo­ther­apy and find bet­ter ways to treat them.

He is one of al­most 100 re­searchers and projects to share in $3.7 mil­lion of fund­ing from the Cancer Coun­cil WA.

Dr Anyaegbu said the re­search aimed to catch cancer-killing cells in the act of fight­ing cancer.
