Brief description and aims of work
The European Institute of Oncology, IEO, is a comprehensive cancer centre located in Milan, Italy. The institute strives for excellence in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer by developing clinical and scientific research coupled with innovative organization and management, in a context that pays constant attention to the quality of the services offered to patients. The European Institute of Oncology was established to implement an innovative model for health and advanced research in the international oncology field. Its Division and Unit Directors come from eight European countries. The research laboratories of the Institute (the Department of Experimental Oncology, located at IFOM‐IEO Campus) are consistently developing and applying genomic research to the field of oncology, providing a substantial contribution to the quick translation of the emerging scientific knowledge into new strategies for the prevention and treatment of tumors. The IFOM‐IEO Campus represents one of the largest centres for cancer research in Europe.
The main role of IEO is to provide anonymized data from breast cancer trials for input into VPH models and subsequent evaluation of the usefulness of the tools, via careful evaluation and validation of the software within the pmedicine environment.
