The Cancéropôle Est supports research projects and technological platforms opening up new perspectives for patient care. The Cancéropôle also promotes interdisciplinary research projects with innovative concepts. The structuration of cancer research within the Cancéropôle geographical area of activity is facilitated by the promotion of several research axis:
- Health indicators-Epidemiology-Human and Social Sciences: "Trajectories of health" network
- Preneoplastic lesions
- Ionizing radiation in biology, combined therapies and molecular imaging: RIBIOTHIM-Onco network
- Liquid biopsy
- Pancreatic cancer: Pancreas-CGE project
- Crossborder actions
These research axis are linked with the development of technological platforms.
The Cancéropôle also stimulates research by launching its own call for proposal to support for example conferences on cancer research on its territory.
