From the lab to the clinic

The Netherlands Cancer Institute uses three types of scientific research. Fundamental research helps us unravel the foundations of biology. Researchers use these discoveries in our translational research to develop new treatment that can be tested in the hospital. Clinical research tests the application of these new treatments and diagnostics.
