Our goal is to contribute to an improvement in
To achieve this goal we aim to create a fruitful, translational research environment where we develop tools for early detection and personalized cancer treatment.
The Sino-Danish Breast Cancer Research Centre was inaugurated in February 2009 based on a three-year grant from the Danish National Research Foundation and the Chinese National Natural Science Foundation.
In July 2011 the Centre obtained a grant extension for the period 2012-2015.
In August 2013 the Centre moved from Frederiksberg Campus to the Danish Cancer Society, Strandboulevarden 49, DK-2100 Copenhagen Ř. With this co-localization, a number of leading cancer researchers are able to collaborate in close contact and thus able to strengthen their research activities.
The partners of the Centre are: Aarhus University, the University of Southern Denmark, the Technical University of Denmark together with the Danish Breast Cancer Cooperative Group, Rigshospitalet and Beijing Genomics Institute, Shenzhen, China.
With the grant extension, three more partners have joined the Centre: Beijing Institute of Genomics (BIG in Beijing), the University of Copenhagen - Center for Protein Research, and the University of Copenhagen - Medicinal Chemistry.
The overall goal of the Centre is to solve some of the most urgent problems in modern treatment of breast cancer:
- Personalised endocrine therapy
- Personalised chemotherapeutic treatment
