The Centre for Innovation in Medicine, together with 16 European Partners launched, on May 16-17, the European-funded Horizon Cancer Mission project “Personalized CANcer Primary Prevention Research through Citizen Participation and digitally-enabled social innovation” (4P-CAN) in Bucharest, Romania.
ECHoS (Establishing Cancer Mission Hubs: Networks and Synergies) is a project aiming to ensure the implementation of the Cancer Mission activities in all member states by establishing and developing Cancer Mission Hubs operating at national, regional, and local levels.
About the event organized in Bucharest by the Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation funding (UEFISCDI), ”Working together for a quick and diagnosis and better treatments for cancer EEA & Norway Grants contributions to the EU Mission Cancer”.
Personalized medicine is here, in Romania and at the highest level of sophistication and customization. The first adult and paediatric patients were successfully treated at the Fundeni Clinical Institute with CAR-T cell therapy, which represents the highest level of personalization of a treatment available now.
East-West inequalities in cancer, the turning point of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, can only be solved in Eastern Europe. In Bucharest, Sofia, Vilnius, Riga, Belgrade, Pristina or Chisinau, not elsewhere. European funds must follow this reality.
