PHB Oncology Cluster

Cancer is a genomic disease that varies in its genetic and epigenetic aberrations between tumors of individual patients with even the same cancer type. The currently prevalent "one size fits all" perception for drug dosing and treatment has been proven to achieve only limited therapeutic success, highlighting the need for a more comprehensive molecular and cellular analysis of the tumor and of the treatment-related changes. The benefit of analysing molecular and cellular features in tumors of individual patients will not only advance clinical drug testing but also substantially improve the development and implementation of rational and personalized treatment strategies for the population.

The goal of our cluster is to create a world-class multidisciplinary center for translational research in Personalized Health medicine in the cancer field. Our cluster brings together all disciplines involved in cancer research in the Basel area relevant to the Personalized Health initiative, including but not limited to basic and clinical laboratory research, clinical oncology, surgery, pathology, radiology and nuclear medicine, epidemiology, computational biology, pharmacology, nanoscience, drug development and delivery. Our local research cluster also strongly collaborates with the partner leading institutions in Zürich through the PH Alliance Zürich-Basel.

Our aim is to provide a nationally and internationally recognized platform for data integration, multi-level communication, education and training and, most importantly, it will also be the condensation core for research projects that tackle the molecular and cellular defects underlying carcinogenesis and improve patient diagnosis and treatment using an interdisciplinary and multi-institutional approach.
