Oncology

Line of Research Description

The treatment of cancer patients has undergone a dramatic change over the last two decades thanks to two fundamental milestones:

  • The use of genomic and molecular diagnosis of tumors.

  • The activation of the immune system as an anti-tumor therapeutic tool.

However, despite the enormous progress achieved, a significant proportion of cancer patients do not benefit from the therapeutic strategies currently available and, at the same time, there are some types of tumors for which current treatments are not effective. 

Through the joint multidisciplinary work of Cima, Clínica and the Cancer Center, the strategic goal for Oncology in the University of Navarra 2025 Strategy is to lead new advances in precision medicine through genomic-based therapies for cancer treatment and to promote the discovery of new therapeutic targets and innovative treatment strategies through the enhancement of the immune system. This will be done using novel technologies such as next-generation mass sequencing in tissue and liquid biopsy, and the generation of CAR-T cells and other advanced therapies against solid and hematologic tumors. Mass data analytics will also be leveraged to develop predictive tools that can be refined for their use in individual patients.
