Working Research Committee (WRC)

The WRCs are the working engine of CONCERT; this is the place where members actively meet to discuss and accelerate translational research activities. The two WRCs, T1/T2 and T2/T3, span the whole spectrum of translational cancer research as outlined in the  CINSW model of translational research (Westfall et al. 2007)

 

The specific goals of the two WRCs are:

 

T1/T2 WRC:

 

To improve the implementation of early research findings into the clinic, and to improve understanding of clinical observations by studying their biopsychosocial origins and interactions, that will ultimately improve survival or quality of life in

cancer patients.

 

T2/T3 WRC:


To improve the implementation of evidence-based research findings into policy and practice that will improve survival or quality of life in cancer patients.
