EurOPDX Distributed Infrastructure for Research on patient-derived cancer Xenografts


Outline of the information recorded in a “PDX Passport”

This Deliverable relates to Task 2.2.1. All PDX models biobanked for the performance of WP3 and WP4 will be accompanied by a PDX Passport. This information sheet will summarise all relevant information on health status (WP2), as well as ethics (WP5) and minimal information on the model defined under WP1. An outline of the Passport will be drafted at the consensus meeting in M1-M2 and further optimised along the first 6 months of the project. This report will therefore outline the information agreed to be recorded in the PDX Passport.

Flyer describing the EurOPDX Infrastructure and available resources and services

This deliverable relates to Task 7.1.4. A flyer will be designed to include crucial information about the project, the partners involved, the services provided. Its content will remain general, in order to remain valid during the whole project duration, and provide all useful links to allow users to follow our activities through the website, Data Portal, and our Twitter account and LinkedIn group. The flyer will be available at M20, and its design and content described in this deliverable.
