Urological cancers

Urological cancers

Theme leader: Tom Scheenen 

Research aims to identify and evaluate the utility of new biomarkers and imaging techniques for risk, diagnostic, prognostic and predictive assessment in prostate, bladder and kidney cancer. Additionally, it is aimed to evaluate new and existing prevention and treatment modalities in these types of cancer. Synergistic multidisciplinary research collaborati on, from molecular life sciences to population sciences, is the tool to keep the theme's focus on 'utility' for the patient and/or public health.
