Integrated Personalized and Precision Oncology Network

Our mission

The research activities of the IPPON consortium are at the forefront of integrated personalized cancer medicine. For different cancers in urgent need for improved therapeutic outcomes, our joint mission is:

  1. To develop novel and more effective therapeutic strategies;
  2. To improve the detection and understanding of mechanisms driving therapeutic resistance;
  3. To identify and validate biomarkers for early detection and personalized therapy.

The strong interdisciplinary partnership between basic, translational and clinical researchers within the IPPON consortium enables us to tackle burning research questions and clinical unmet needs, and leads us to meaningful advances in the highly innovative and rapidly changing field of personalized cancer medicine and to improved patient outcomes both in terms of survival and quality of life.


IPPON is always open to collaborations with public and non-public research institutes and companies in order to create more opportunities leading to improved cancer therapy. For more information you can always contact us.
