TMC and BIACH & RI to research on Cancer together - Sakshi Post

The Mumbai-based Tata Memorial Centre (TMC) and the city-based Basavatarakam Indo-American Cancer Hospital and Research Institute (BIACH&RI) today said they intend to promote joint research on cancer.

They aim at creating a 'Cancer Collaboration Network' to facilitate sharing clinical experiences and expertise, training and education, research and development and spreading cancer awareness to the public, TMC Director Rajendra Badwe and BIACH&RI trustee Nori Dattatreyudu said in a statement.

TMC and BIACH&RI will take the lead in creating a platform to expand this network, they said, adding that it would bring together various hospitals, doctors, scientists, pharma, industry, insurance, governments, NGOs and citizens dealing with cancer patients. Network coordinators to be identified by TMC and BIACH&RI, will work with the Tata Strategic Management Group to facilitate formulation of a MoU and work to fulfil the aims and objectives of the proposed network, they said, according to a release, after the conclusion of a four-day 'Global Oncology Summit-2013' here today.
