Relevance to Healthy Ageing

Print 

‘Healthy Ageing’ is the central research theme within the UMCG (and University of Groningen). Within the CRCG, this theme is addressed and incorporated in various ways depending on the type of research that is conducted within a specific research programme. Unifying themes are the improvement of cancer treatment by studying the molecular, cellular, and genetic defects of malignant cells and by developing and applying new diagnostic techniques or treatment options. Moreover, unintended short-term and long-term side effects of treatment are studied, with the goal to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors.
