Get the patient into the lab!
Oncode started the Patient Perspective Program. The goal of this program is to connect (ex-)patients to Oncode labs and/or individual Oncode researchers. This should decrease the distance between Oncode researchers and patients so they can explore, investigate and understand each other's worlds. Research groups from the Netherlands Cancer Institute and the LUMC are taking part in the first pilot of the Patient Perspective Program.
