I’m an U of Arizona alum so I am always in support of Wildcats! Arizona Cancer Center is a well known cancer research center – Congrats to Emmanuelle J. Meuillet!

The National Cancer Institute has awarded a five-year, $1.8 million grant to an Arizona Cancer Center researcher to study the role of inflammation in colon carcinogenesis and to develop a new therapy to treat colon cancer.

“People affected with Inflammatory Bowel Disease are at higher risk to develop colon cancer,” said principal investigator Emmanuelle J. Meuillet, an Arizona Cancer Center member and associate professor of nutritional sciences and molecular and cellular biology at the University of Arizona.
