CRC Updates with Dr. Manju George

Dr. Manju George
Welcome to CRC Updates, hosted by PALTOWN’s Scientific Director, Dr. Manju George. Manju is a rectal cancer survivor, who originally trained as a veterinary surgeon, but went on to do biomedical research in the areas of virology, cancer biology and cell biology. She has extensive experience working with genetically engineered mouse models. 
 
Since her diagnosis, Manju has been very interested in following developments in oncology, specifically colorectal cancer, and bringing this information to patients & caregivers. She does this by attending various oncology meetings, and keeping track of information on Twitter and everywhere else where experts on colorectal cancer meet, exchange information and share opinions. She is part of many collaborative projects, expert panels, and research meetings in the colorectal cancer space.
 
On this blog, Manju brings her unique experience as a patient-scientist to COLONTOWN University for you. Follow along with her monthly TweetChats on CRC clinical trials (@CRCTrialsChat) or her personal Twitter account (@manjuggm), to stay in the loop on research advances and hot topics discussed on Twitter, at conferences, and everywhere CRC clinicians and researchers gather.
