Training young researchers in cancer treatment
Remarkable progress has been made in cancer research over the past decade. Despite significant breakthroughs in cancer prevention and treatment, this disease continues to affect millions of people worldwide. Institut Curie is a centre of excellence in cancerology, promoting synergies between high-level scientists and medical doctors. The EU-funded EuReCa (Europe, Research & Care) project is an innovative COFUND programme that will train early-stage researchers (ESRs) in cancerology. It will support their career advancement in top-level scientific knowledge for innovative diagnosis and treatment strategies. The project will also provide training to support the successful integration of ESRs in the market. Proposed interactions between theoretical and clinical research will prepare new scientists to apply research findings to treatment.
