The Oncosphere, a space for collaboration
The Oncosphère network is a collaboration project between the Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Limoges and Poitiers Universities. The aim of this scientific animation network is to develop the links between the different academic and industrial research teams, to create interdisciplinary approaches and make them durable. Nouvelle-Aquitaine researchers were already able to produce results for patients and develop platforms and young companies. We would like to amplify this dynamic.
Federate cancer research in Nouvelle-Aquitaine
The Oncosphere network benefits from a strong regional political will of promotion, a dynamic of all researchers involved in cancer research and strong support from universities and hospital partners, in line with their relevant strategic projects. This project is a unique opportunity to develop interdisciplinary collaborations in a competitive ecosystem. It increases the scientific production and the attractiveness of the sites of Nouvelle-Aquitaine, to create and support projects of innovative companies in health and to facilitate the development and spread of new progresses for the benefit of patients, in particular through a close partnership with patients and society.
To the Nouvelle-Aquitaine scale, the Oncosphère project is organized in 5 lines of research: Fundamental and translational oncogenesis, tumor microenvironment, technological innovation, aging, environments.
