Dear Café Scientifiquers,


Our next café will happen on Tuesday November 29th, 7:30PM at the Railway Club. The speaker for the evening will be Dr. Richard Moore, a scientist at the world-renowned Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre. His talk will be on:


Cancer Metagenomics: Microbes and Cancer


Greater than 20% of all cancers are known to be caused by microbes (viruses and bacteria) including cervical cancer, liver cancer and gastric cancer. I will describe how we are using the latest sequencing technologies to discover novel associations between microbes and cancer. I will highlight our recent discovery of Fusobactium nucleatum overabundance in colorectal cancer.

We hope to see you there!
