Abstract:The Laboratory Research Division (LRD) of the EORTC currently consists of five Groups with expertise that includes pre-clinical drug development, all aspects of cancer pharmacology, clinically-relevant receptor and biomarker studies, functional imaging and contemporary pathology. The LRD provides a Europewide resource for cancer clinical trials with particular expertise in the evolving field of translational research. In the development of therapies designed to exploit the molecular and cellular pathology of cancer, it is essential that translational research is included at all stages and the EORTC, through the LRD, has access to such expertise. In addition to providing support for drug development and clinical trials, the LRD represents a unique forum for the development of contemporary translational research expertise, the establishment of quality standards and the education of young laboratory and clinical scientists embarking on careers in oncology.
