4EU+ Against Cancer SUMMER SCHOOL

Oncology, combining preclinical (i.e. in silico, in vitro, in vivo) and clinical (early and late phases) research becomes even more complex once we consider additional related complementary fields of investigations. Consequently, oncological research becomes more and more cost- and time-consuming. This Summer School will give an overview of the different axes of research in oncology and different fundings of research.
