Cancer Precision Medicine
Precision medicine is a treatment approach customised to each individual patient. Because no two cancers are precisely alike, therapies often need to be tailored to specific tumours and patients to be effective. In cancer, precision medicine uses specific information about a person’s tumour to help make a diagnosis, plan treatment, monitor treatment response, or make a prognosis.
In the research programme Cancer Precision Medicine, we aim to understand how factors such as genetics, epigenetics, molecular mechanisms, proteins, biomarkers, cellular processes, tumour biology and epidemiology can form a basis to find the best approach to prevent or treat the disease. Our research ranges all the way from bench to bedside.
