The Strategic Research Programme in Cancer (StratCan) and the KICancer network have joined forces to become an overarching umbrella organisation and single entry point to cancer research at KI. StratCan-KICancer includes some 150 research groups focusing on different areas of cancer research, aiming to combine cancer research with clinical oncology by bringing together top level cancer scientists from different disciplines. The overall goal is to generate new scientific discoveries that can be rapidly translated into clinical practice for the benefit of patients and society.
