“Novel translational approaches to tackle the challenges of hard-to-treat cancers from early diagnosis to therapy”

In this second call, the TRANSCAN-3 network focusses on hard-to-treat-cancers (HTTC), i.e. those characterized by very poor prognosis (5-year survival rate<25%) and for which survival has not improved significantly over the last decades. The JTC 2022 aims to foster translational research tackling current clinical challenges, which include the inadequacy of standard diagnostic tools or established early detection methods in the general population, but also the inefficacy of available treatment options, due to intrinsic resistance and/or ineffective drug delivery.

The expected outcome of the call is to improve the efficacy of current diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of HTTC, through the development of novel personalized approaches based on a better understanding of the peculiarities of HTTC.
