​​For the CRCG, its research endeavor can be summarized as ‘healthier and longer lives of cancer patients through improved care’. Its research programmes reflect the mutual research interest of major research departments involved in cancer research within the UMCG. The general themes are focused on the clarification of molecular mechanisms that determine malignant transformation in a broad spectrum of tumors and to translate these fundamental insights into improved early detection and treatment of cancer. As part of this research strategy, biomarkers are developed that can be used at an early time point to predict long-term side effects. These research topics are integrated in the following four research programmes:
