Mr James Kinross - Imperial College London, London, UK

Mr James Kinross talks to ecancer at the Microbiome in Cancer and Beyond 2017 meeting about the microbiome's role in the treatment of cancer, determining the toxicity of certain treatments, and influencing the development of resistance to chemotherapeutics.

Mr Kinross speaks of the microbiome revolution, where we have come to realise how important the microbiome is in influencing cancer. He underlines the enormous diversity of the microbiome, as well as it's specificity to each individual. This means it must be taken into account when designing drugs, as we simply cannot rely on solely genetic understanding.
