A team of scientists in Sutton are looking to unique genes to find cancer susceptibility.
Professor Richard Houlston and his team at the Institute of Cancer Research are advancing the battle against cancer by looking at how tiny differences in our genes can make some people more likely to develop multiple myeloma.
The scientists, based in Belmont next to the Royal Marsden, will conduct the research which aims to find ways to target the causes of myeloma to stop the cancer in its tracks.
The blood cancer charity Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research has awarded the team a grant in excess of £220,000 to support the project.
