Working Group 1

Basic and Translational Research on Rare Gynaecological Cancer

Main Objective

Coordination of ongoing and future research activities to further develop a well-established network of researchers in gynaecological cancer, focusing on very rare diseases where the treatments options are scarce. The main outcome is to develop and empower clusters of stakeholders around strategic research themes in order to further boost basic research.


a) To initiate new collaborations with basic, translational and clinical researchers and to further expand our network to connect these stakeholders;

b) To define strategic research lines upon which all relevant stakeholders agree on, including e.g. patient representatives and industrial advisors;     

c) To coordinate the development of a funding strategy to support the future research.
