Centre for Precision Oncology
Cancer research has revealed that tumours from different organs may share the same genetic mutations and, conversely, tumours from the same organ can be fundamentally different.
Precision oncology represents an innovative approach to cancer care that ensures the treatment is specifically designed and targeted against each patient's unique form of the disease.
We employ a wide range of genetic testing techniques to evaluate specific molecular characteristics of the tumour that help us understand cancer biology and identify the culprit gene(s) responsible for its aggressive behaviour. Since every treatment protocol is tailored to patient’s individual mutations, we aim to improve therapy outcomes and reduce its possible adverse effects.
