The ONCOBIOME project already identifies the following major initiatives to liaise with:

  • Cancer Core Europe (CCE) is a unique European consortium of 7 leading cancer centres treating large numbers of cancer patients, with accumulated expertise in the harmonization of data collection, storage, and sharing. Four of the ONCOBIOME partners are members of CCE; IGR, UCAM, INT and KI.
  • The International Human Microbiome Consortium (IHMC) coordinates the activities and policies of the international groups studying the human microbiome with the final aim to improve prevention and treatment of diseases. The results of ONCOBIOME projects will directly feed the IHMC knowledge and tools.
