3 years & a new name for the Leuven PDX platform: Trace

On November 27, 2015 we have been celebrating with a PDX Symposium the 3rd anniversary of the PDX platform in the University Hospitals Leuven and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Several researchers from Leuven and other institutions have been presenting their work on the establishment and validation of PDX, as well as their application in various fields of cancer research and including different tumour types. In addition, the Symposium was a great opportunity to appreciate the models already available through the platform, demonstrating also the multidisciplinarity in applying PDX models with a variety of different approaches.

This meeting was also the occasion to launch the new name of the platform, "Trace", and its brand new website: www.uzleuven-kuleuven.be/lki/trace. On the website you will find an overview of the models currently available through Trace (in Technologies/overview), and all necessary contact information.
