Lab Translational Oncology (LTO) Read more >

Translational cancer research at the UMCU is concentrated in the Lab Translational Oncology (LTO), the Lab Translational Cancer Imaging (LTC) and the Lab Translational Immunology (LTI).
Insights from fundamental research are used to develop and test new strategies for diagnosis and treatment. A common goal is to generate biological proof-of-concept of the effectiveness of such new strategies in pre-clinical model systems and cancer patients.

The LTO hosts the Utrecht Platform for Organoid Technology which aims to stimulate the application of organoid technology in translational cancer research.
