Erler Lab, Oct 2016
Kræftens Bekæmpelse, the Danish Cancer Society, has awarded us a new grant to personalise the treatments for patients suffering with relapsed glioblastoma (brain tumours) in Denmark. This grant comes under the Knæk Cancer (or ‘Break Cancer’) campaign.
Glioblastoma can vary greatly, so it is important to understand how each individual tumour will respond to different treatments. The aim of this project is to analyse patient samples with a range of tests in the laboratory, to discover the best possible treatment for each unique patient. Similar systems are in place in other countries, however this currently doesn’t exist in Denmark, so we are hopeful that this project will have a big impact on the lives of those fighting brain cancer.
We are grateful to Kræftens Bekæmpelse for their support in this project. You can learn more about Kræftens Bekæmpelse by visiting their website: www.cancer.dk/
