Lausanne Takes Another Step against Cancer

The Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research (ISREC) has inaugurated as of the beginning of this year the AGORA – Pôle de recherche sur le cancer on the Lausanne hospital site. This building will bring together about 300 multi-disciplinary teams composed of doctors, biologists, immunologists, bioinformaticians and bioengineers from the different partner institutions. The objective is that through their often interactions development of new therapies will be accelerated which will enable patients to benefit from them immediately.

The ISREC Foundation, responsible for the construction of this building, will thus contribute to the setting up of the new interdisciplinary centre for applied cancer research (SCCL, Swiss Cancer Center Lemanic), which unites the competences of the universities, federal institutes of technology (EPFs), hospitals, clinics and public and private institutions.
