Cancer prevention & survivorship
The best way to fight cancer is to prevent it from developing in the first place, or to detect it early. This program continuously tries to understand and predict who is at increased risk to improve prevention and early diagnosis. To increase the quality of life of cancer survivors, the program designs and evaluates interventions to optimize care, during and after treatment.
Main UMC Utrecht groups are:
- Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care
- Oncology Committee and Tumor boards
