Currently, U-CRC gathers 21 research groups working on one or more aspects of cancer research. Over 190 scientists and physicians are working together in order to carry out research of the highest quality where basic and translational research will be conducted in close relation with clinical research for the benefit of patients.
The main missions of the U-CRC are to:
- Stimulate and support collaborative, interdisciplinary cancer research;
