Toute la journée

In partnership with the Cancéropôle CLARA

The Precision Oncology Summer School 2024 will take place in Archamps from July 2 to July 10, 2024.

Advances in precision medicine are enabling health-care providers to go beyond the “one-size-fits all” approach and instead to offer and plan individualised care to cancer patients.

The molecular characterization of tumours and their micro-environment, together with the appreciation of their spatial and temporal heterogeneity, are at the forefront of precision oncology.

Increased understanding of the molecular pathways and complex gene-environment interactions which underlie cancer development, is opening the path to more effective prevention, optimised treatment selection and delivery, and enhanced clinical outcomes, including quality of life.

Goal of the school

Develop innovation projects in oncology through a transversal and transdisciplinary programme focusing on:

  1. Management (teamwork, project management, motivation within the group, scientific communication): Acquisition of “soft skills” that go beyond traditional university courses
  2. Technological advances (gene expression, image processing, …): Opening up to other scientific and technological fields (multidisciplinary)
  3. Entrepreneurship (innovation, business model, marketing, communication, intellectual property, ethics): Raising awareness of entrepreneurship as a potential career pathway
