To better understand how a tumour grows and why metastases are formed. A task for the new Centre for Tumour Ecology.
Experts from the Centre for Tumour Ecology
study cells in the microenvironment surrounding the tumour. They look for the
treatment of some cancer types that are rather refractory to current therapies.
For their work, they have obtained European funding amounting to 300 million
CZK. Originators of the projects come from the First Faculty of Medicine at
Charles University, which will collaborate with the Faculty of Science at
Charles University and with the Czech Academy of Sciences.
The main scientific coordinator of the project is prof. Karel Smetana, MD, DSc, Head of the Institute of Anatomy of the First Faculty of Medicine and head of the research group Stem Cells in the Epidermis and Their Use in Cell Therapy at BIOCEV
