The Translational Cancer Faster Forward postdoctoral programme – CanFaster-ER

Project description

A posdoc boost for cancer research

Cancer is the leading cause of death. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that one in six deaths worldwide are due to cancer. To beat cancer and save lives, research is at full speed. Supported by the European Union’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme, the CanFaster-Postdoc project aims to attract international PhD candidates with an interest in applied medical research in oncology and entrepreneurship to Lund University. The researchers will be trained in an academic and non-academic setting. They will become innovators, equipped with a broad set of scientific, transferable, and business skills. This is in line with the project’s main goal, which is to increase transnational and intersectoral mobility and collaboration within oncology between academia, industry and hospital/healthcare organisations.
