Welcome to the website of the TUMOR project
TUMOR is a 3-year collaborative project co-funded under the 7th Framework programme of the European Community. The project aims at implementing a EU cancer model/data repository, and developing/providing specific tools and methods for the collection, curation, validation and customization of existing EU and US cancer models, by linking the most significant relevant EU VPH projects on cancer modelling (ContraCancrum, ACGT), and the US project (CViT).
TUMOR involves four partners from three European countries and one partner from the USA.
The key expected results of the project include:
- Facilitated access to and utilization of internationally available models can lead to the development of “higher-order” multi-level cancer models which will address more aspects of the natural phenomenon of cancer.
- An EU cancer model repository based on mutual exchange of model and tool executables will emerge, thus facilitating international cancer research interaction and compatibility.
- A signifcant expansion of the VPH interoperability efforts will evolve beyond the EU boundaries (EU-US cancer model interoperability).
