ON DEMAND: Using synthetic biology and bacteriophages to treat colorectal cancer
Date & Time
Friday, June 5, 2020, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Assaf Oron

• Discover how the presence of intra-tumoral F. nucleatum promotes tumor growth and treatment resistance in colorectal cancer.

• Assess the latest 2019/2020 in vivo data on how to engineer phage to target and eradicate specific bacteria (F. nucleatum) in the tumor microenvironment for therapeutic response.

• Understand the mechanisms of action of phage therapy in colorectal

cancer and the phase 1 clinical studies being designed to study these

mechanisms further.
