NEW YORK — Prescient Metabiomics said on Tuesday that it has partnered with the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health to investigate microbiome biomarkers in colon cancer.

Under the terms of the deal, Prescient Metabiomics and collaborators at the Harvard Chan Microbiome in Public Health Center will study the use of microbial biomarkers to identify precancerous adenomas and carcinomas in the colon. The effort will initially use bioinformatic approaches to analyze colorectal cancer cases across different populations, focusing on prevalent gut microbial biomarkers for the disease.
