How the Gut Microbiome Affects Cancer and Its Treatment


Research by MSI PI Tim Starr (Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Women’s Health) is featured in the Spring issue of the University of Minnesota Foundation’s magazine Discovery. Professor Starr studies the genetic changes that cause cancer to form, and uses resources available through MSI for these genetic studies.

The Discovery article highlights researchers at the U who are studying how the gut microbiome affects both cancer development and its treatment. It can be found on the Foundation’s website: Gut Check on Cancer.
