WHY WE JOIN TERM
We see the TERM project as an opportunity for the BCRT to facilitate European collaborations. Our goal is to develop strategies on how to use the resources of the different regions more synergistically and effectively. Our focus is to develop joint projects with high translational potential and to acquire the funding opportunities that allow us to bring those new solutions to our patients.
