LUCC strategic networks

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