         The overall agenda of the Colorectal Cancer research group (CCRG) is to study changes at the transcription level using gene expression arrays for the discovery of novel biomarkers in Saudi colon cancer patients. This will also involve defining molecular markers and quantitatively measurable morphological variables related to treatment response and disease outcome in different subgroups of colon cancer and delineate how these studies can be exploited for better diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of colon cancer. Other research areas covered at CCRG include studying colorectal microRNAome and proteome in Saudi patients.

          The focus of future research will involve integrative approaches based on gene expression, microRNA and protein expression to identify regulatory pathways in colon cancer pathogenesis.
