CRIG's International Thematic Network 'PrIOMiC' kick-off symposium


With support from Ghent University, CRIG established an International Thematic Network (ITN) on 'Precision oncology, Immuno-Oncology and Modeling in Cancer', called ‘PrIOMiC’. The aim of the PrIOMiC network is to stimulate interaction and collaboration between CRIG and international experts from renowned cancer research institutes on these themes. Through this network, we aim to build long-term partnerships and to promote excellent research, education & societal impact. The PrIOMiC network is open to all cancer researchers in Ghent. Read more about PrIOMiC and its activities and opportunities.

On 2 March 2020, we officially launch our PrIOMiC network with a kick-off symposium. This one-day symposium will provide a forum to top researchers from our internationally renowned partner institutes to present their state-of-the-art research and expertise. We welcome all interested cancer researchers and students to this symposium to learn from and interact with experts in the field, and to get inspired to start international collaborations.
