We are committed to strengthen the Research&Innovation capacity of the Austrian-Italian crossborder Regions Friuli Venezia Giulia, Alto Adige and Tyrol, by tackling together key problems of cancer treatment, by promoting research excellence and thereby boosting innovation in the regional Biotech/Health sector.
We are convinced that the transfer of p-care knowledge and expertise to other experts in the field of cancer biology and medicine, as well as to the next generations of biologists, clinical oncologists, bioinformaticians and other professionals, is key to this aim.
This strategy will allow an effective translation of p-care results into advancements in cancer treatment and personalized care.
Training opportunities are available from p-care to broaden research skills and work perspectives of students, postdocs, medical doctors, scholars and researchers of the cancer research and biotech sector.
Summer School and Workshops
p-care workshops are organized about every 6 months and offer researcher and students top notch scientific seminars on research progresses in the field of precision cancer medicine, cancer drug resistance, innovative therapeutic strategies and other topics.
The p-care summer school will focus on more specific and technical aspects regarding the development of complex 3D cell culture systems, drug resistance, drug screening strategies and combination therapy designs. The summer school is scheduled to take place in 2022, and it will transfer know-how obtained during the project periods to researchers and students.
Main targets of these public educational events will be bachelor, master and predoctoral students as well as the scientific, medical and biotech entrepreneurial communities.
1st p-care Workshop
The first p-care Workshop on precision cancer medicine is focused on why anti-cancer treatments can fail to produce effective and durable responses, and how the patient’s immune system can be spurred to fight cancer. Invited speakers: two leading Italian and Austrian scientists, Gustavo Baldassare from the National Cancer Istitute in Aviano, Italy, and Dominik Wolf, Director of the Department of Internal Medicine of the Medical University of Innsbruck, Austria, and partner in p-care.

p-care handbook and protocols
A key goal of the p-care project it to establish a technological platform with state-of-the-art technologies to target therapy resistance. In order to make these technologies available to the research community, operating procedures and methods will be collected in standard operating procedures (SOPs) and made accessible.
Interested in p-care technical materials? They will be soon available.
