AGORA Cancer Research Center

The AGORA Cancer Research Center was born out of a collective vision to establish a hub for cancer research excellence, allowing close multidisciplinary collaboration and providing an environment to precipitate different ideas, potentially making unconventional connections and innovating in order to discover novel solutions relating to the treatment of, and further understanding, of cancer.

On October 3, 2018, the ISREC Foundation officially inaugurated the AGORA Cancer Research Center. Initiated by the ISREC Foundation in 2013, the realization of the AGORA project was the result of a partnership between the Vaud University Hospital (CHUV), the University of Lausanne (UNIL), the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG) and the University of Geneva (UNIGE). The aim is for this project to continue to develop as an important platform for collaboration between numerous individual researchers, institutions and cantons.
