Grant to support cancer research
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.
