The aim of Selçuk Çolak’s research is to gain more insight into therapy resistance in colorectal cancer, and to identify novel forms of treatment. He looks at the variation between patients and cell heterogeneity within tumours to increase our understanding of why tumours recur and how we can prevent this regrowth. Cell heterogeneity is largely down to the existence of a small population of so-called cancer stem cells (CSCs) that drive tumour growth and resist therapy. Unravelling why these CSCs are resistant to therapy can help to develop therapies targeting these specific cells.
