19 October 2023

In this Webinar they are focusing on the importance of translational research referred to “bench-to-bedside” by showcasing two successful models for bridging the gap between preclinical and clinical research.

Paediatric Oncologist Professor Gilles Vassal from Institute Gustave Roussy, distinguished member of the ERNPaedCan, will present the ACCELERATE, an international multistakeholder organization to improve and accelerate new drug development for children and adolescent with cancer.

Joanne Lee from Newcastle University will talk about ACT concept (Advisory Committees for Therapeutics) and introduce the ACT toolkit. She will also provide background about the TACT Neuromuscular model and talk about the progress that has been made so far in establishing similar models with some ERNs.
