EurOPDX workshop on validation and characterisation of PDX models

Hosted by the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO) in Barcelona, Spain, the EurOPDX community met in November 2014 for the 5th time. This meeting was an opportunity to review the progress of the different collaborative projects pursued by the Consortium. But the main objective was to discuss and agree on common standards across the centres for the validation and characterisation of the PDX models. A publication is under preparation.
