Strategic networks

LUCC has 16 strategic translational networks based on cancer diagnosis, technology or processes. The aim of the networks is to bridge the basic and clinical science and the diverse disciplines. Networking activities include discussions about scientific challenges in the field, facilitation of new collaborations, and sharing technical and educational expertise. The key goal is to create opportunities that set the foundation for novel interdisciplinary research collaboration.
