Organisation profile

The TMU Research Center of Cancer Translational Medicine (RCCTM) is established through combining all cancer-related resources of TMU and its three affiliated hospitals. RCCTM is established with the goal of translating the research discoveries into state-of-the-art therapeutics for the prevention and treatment of cancer, as well as training future oncologists. We are committed to reduce the cancer burden through skilled, integrated and compassionate clinical care, and to eliminate the threat of cancer through research and education.
