Center for Oncological Research (CORE)

Research group

Lifecycle:1 Jan 2019 →  Today
Organisation profile:The Center for Oncological Research (CORE) is a joint oncology research platform of the University of Antwerp, where basic, translational and (pre)clinical cancer research is being performed. Our research focuses on: 1) developing and testing novel cancer therapies; 2) improving methods for diagnosis and follow-up; and 3) characterizing tumors and their micro-environment. CORE is operational on three sites: 1) the University of Antwerp Campus Drie Eiken (Wilrijk); 2) the Antwerp University Hospital (Edegem); and 3) the GZA Hospitals Campus Sint-Augustinus (Wilrijk). The large number of collaborating cancer researchers at CORE, the availability of high-tech lab facilities and of patient material via Tumorbank@UZA and the strong nexus between clinical and biomedical researchers are our assets that contribute to our internationally recognized expertise in cancer research.
