POI featured as SFI case study
POI was recently featured in an online article from SFI, as a case study on precision medicine approaches in research.
Walter spoke to SFI to provide some detail and context on the work being done in POI.
“Our aim is to bring the advanced technologies that help us with experiments at the lab bench all the way through to clinical trials with patients,” explains Professor Walter Kolch, Director of Precision Oncology Ireland and Systems Biology Ireland in University College Dublin. “Our research is enabling the search for new drugs, we are exploring how to make more informative cancer diagnoses and we are also looking at how the ‘micro-environment’ around the tumour affects how the cancer develops and responds to treatment.”
