Ovarian cancer has 5-year survival rate of 35% in Ireland, with 6 in 10 cases diagnosed at an advanced stage. When caught early, survival doubles, and still there is no screening test for this disease. My project aims to identify DNA markers that could be used to detect ovarian cancer at an early stage using blood and/or urine. If successful, my project could lay the foundations for development of this test to improve survival from this lethal disease.
