Wise Faculty of Life Sciences and Sackler School of Medicine, in collaboration with other faculties of the University, and sponsored by the university's president and rector.
CBRC facilitates cooperative research between the basic cancer scientists at the University Campus and the clinical research centers in the affiliated hospitals. This goal is achieved through conferences, symposia, collaborative research grants, and the support of students & junior scientists in international scientific meetings and courses.
With over 600 members both from the University and from 17 affiliated hospitals, CBRC is a multidisciplinary center. This unique blend of scientists, clinicians and students from different disciplines has led to significant progress in cancer related research and clinical practice
The Center's vision is to advance cancer research by creating collaboration between basic scientific researchers and clinicians engaged in prevention, diagnosis treatment and cure of Cancer.
This goal is achieved by CBRC ability to support translational research at its best as a connecting link between basic research and the patient's bed side. The Center encourages and creates conceptual and practical infrastructure to support unique studies in clinical and research aspects. The collaboration may also involve scientists and research projects from other faculties at the University as well as through joint meetings here and abroad with scientists from top international medical and research institutions, which facilitates exchange of ideas and information.
Another emphasis of CBRC activities is teaching and training young generation of students as well as interns and young research fellows. Assisting young scientists to participate in international conferences, workshops and courses followed by funding grants dedicated for young scientists or to new ideas allows to strengthen the first steps of future Israeli scientists.
