EurocanPlatform is funded by the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (Project N° 260791)bringing together 28 European cancer Institutions and organisations to work together in a unique collaboration. The centres are sharing infrastructures and collaborating on projects to help advance cancer research and treatment.
Through the EurocanPlatform, ECPC and its partners, notably Prof. Riegman, EMC, WP10 leader, have compiled a concise document which provides European cancer patients with the basic knowledge to understand the importance and power of biobanking. The booklet called ‘Biobanking: FAQs’ was done in collaboration with expert patient Margaret Wilcox (Independent Cancer Patients’ Voice).
* ECPC believes that whereas the core document provides important information, it needs to be revised and updated based on current statistics and following the recent developments with regards to research on melanoma. *
