Sharing know-how and knowledge :
Training future researchers and clinicians is an integral part of DHU Oncogreffe’s missions. The challenge is to strengthen the dialogue between cancerology, imaging and immunology to create a common culture between researchers, teachers, clinicians and care-givers, promoting the decompartmentalisation of know-how and practices to provide patients with better service.
The DHU Oncogreffe teaching programme is coordinated by an educational committee comprising scientists, pharmacists and physicians to ensure the links between the different courses. It includes discussion at every stage of the teaching and agreement with the proposed formation of Future Investment programmes in Nantes. Thus, the DHU promotes scientific and medical training in the form of short professionalising courses (initial or ongoing training) in connection with the programmes at LabEx IGO and IRON, EquipEx and IHU CESTI with the support of the Pays de la Loire region:
- training courses in translational immunology (within the context of labex IGO)
- transplantation surgery school (IHU CESTI)
- international summer schools (LabEx IGO)
preparation of radiopharmaceuticals (LabEx IRON)…
