We are pleased to invite you to the Basic Oncology course! Due to the ongoing corona regulations, we aim to organize the course in a hybrid format, partly on-site and partly by streaming. The registered PhD students will receive detailed information about the course and the definitive format as soon as possible.

This 5-day course provides you a broad overview of oncology-related topics, with an emphasis on recent advances and issues that are relevant to the pathogenesis and treatment of cancer. The course is designed for all OOA PhD students, but it is recommended to join our course during your first or second year, to make sure that you have a solid base in oncology already at an early stage of your PhD trajectory.

The course includes lectures by experts in the field, workgroups and (homework) assignments.

Topics covered include:
– Cancer Biology

– Imaging
– Cancer Immunology
– Clinical Therapy
– Target and Therapy Discovery
– Biomarkers
РSupportive care
