Northwest France Cancer Research Cluster
The assignment of the Northwest France Cancer Research Cluster is to accelerate the research / innovation / treatment cycle in the interest of patients, based on an approach of a care-research continuum and knowledge transfer for therapeutic applications:
- By improving the structure of skills and infrastructure at the inter-regional level, based on interdisciplinarity, critical mass and scientific excellence.
- By encouraging original, ambitious and innovative research programmes based on the interconnections and complementarity between the different research disciplines.
- By coordinating the implementation of an integrated research, based on the transfer and access of patients to clinical innovations.
It is a flexible structure for cooperation, designed to promote and support research through sharing tools such as the tumour bank, data processing centre and two genomics platforms.
