Why it matters
EUCANCan aims at supporting and enhancing modern oncology, by implementing a cultural, technological and legal integrated framework across Europe and Canada, to enable and facilitate the efficient analysis, management and sharing of cancer genomic data.
This cooperative framework is not only expected to immediately contribute to improve biomedical research in cancer, but to also serve as a model for globalizing and enriching personalised medicine initiatives, allowing the exchange of data, clinical experience and information across different national health systems.
What ECPC does
ECPC Chair of Scientific Committee Francesco de Lorenzo sits on the EUCANCan Advisory Board to ensure the project activities are in line with the needs of cancer patients by actively participating in discussions and providing feedback and input on research activities and outputs.
