To improve cancer treatment we need a better understanding of how
normal cells work and what goes wrong when they turn into cancer cells.
Discoveries made in the laboratory are therefore the keys that can
unlock new therapies. The Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI)
encourages scientists and clinicians to work together, forming
integrated teams that can rapidly translate new knowledge into
prototype therapies and trial them in the clinic. This close
collaboration, coupled with world-class scientists and clinicians,
highly motivated students and outstanding facilities has made the NKI
an internationally recognized center of excellence in cancer research.
