Translational research

Translational research projects encourage collaborations between basic and clinical research. Their goal is to study cells and their interactions with the environment, and in so doing to provide new impulses for novel therapies and clinical approaches in order to be able to act on the causes of cellular malfunction.  

Financial support for translational cancer research projects is possible thanks to:

"Allocated funds" - These funds are specifically created for each project. They come from private donations and must be used for the predetermined purpose. The Foundation guarantees that donations are used in full to finance the project to which they have been allocated.

“ISREC chairs” - These are created to offer young professors affiliated to the EPFL (School of Life Sciences - ISREC) or to a Swiss University (Faculty of biology or medicine) the opportunity to launch their career in research. They are financed by the fortune of the Foundation.
