Introduction:

The Oncology Research Group was created by a team in the area of ​​Oncobiology, Oncogenetics and Oncological Diseases, intending to take advantage of the synergies created by the Medical Oncology Service of the Hospital of Porto.

The Union intends to direct its actions towards:

  • Developing research, including multidisciplinary and translational research in oncology, particularly in cancer genetics and oncogenomics by defining lines and building projects networks;

  • Cooperation by signing agreements with other units / research and training centers or other organizations interested in the development of Oncobiology at a national and an international level;

  • Contributing to the enrichment and diffusion of knowledge in the area of ​​Health and Life Sciences, particularly in biology and tumor pathophysiology;

  • Providing external services to third parties through budgeting costs and enabling the raise of funds for the group;

  • Encouraging the training of new researchers;

  • Collaborating in all activities that are agreed with ICBAS-UP, in research, teaching and dissemination of the various actions undertaken by both.



Aims:

The main purposes of the Oncology Group are:

  • To develop research, including multidisciplinary and translational research in oncology, particularly in cancer genetics and oncogenomics by defining lines and building projects networks;
  • To collaborate by signing agreements with other units / research and training centers or other organizations interested in the development of Oncobiology at a national and na international level;
  • To contribute to the enrichment and diffusion of knowledge in the area of Health and Life Sciences, particularly biology and tumor pathophysiology.
