Cancer Immunology & Prevention

Examine correlation between infections and cancers

I have heard that there is a microbiology instrument that from one drop of blood can find traces of over 100 different infections that a person has been exposed to during her lifetime.

How will your solution make a difference

If there is an unknown correlation between microbes and cancer a vaccine should be developed. Vaccination would hopefully generate fewer cancerpatients.

What is your proposed solution

Analyze cancerpatients blood and search for infections they have had during their life, compare the results with healthy people to see if some exposures are more common among different types of cancerspatients.Use big-data.
