The Glasgow Collaborative Colorectal Initiative (GCCI) brings together individual groupings from within Glasgow University, the CRUK Beatson Institute and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, all with a common interest in colorectal cancer. By combining our strengths in discovery, translational and clinical research we have the foundations to develop personalised treatment strategies for colorectal cancer patients in a true bench to bedside manner. The team is managed by a multidisciplinary collaborative grouping of translational scientists (Dr Joanne Edwards and Professor Donald McMillan), discovery scientists (Professor Owen Sansom and Dr Seth Coffelt), academic surgeons (Mr Campbell Roxburgh and Professor Paul Horgan) and oncologists (Dr Janet Graham). Since the initial formation of this collaborative grouping, the team has strengthened its academic resources by developing large comprehensive patient cohorts of linked clinical data along with extensive in vivo models and investing in state-of-the-art equipment for genomic analysis.
