Our supporting programmes

​Part of Oncode’s research budget is earmarked for targeted research-support programmes. Oncode Investigators will be able to make use of these funds for the purpose of promoting translational and clinical connections and enhancing individual projects and personal development. Funds will not be distributed equally among the OIs but will be allocated to plans that will help to fulfil Oncode’s objectives. Examples of these programmes are listed below.

Link to the clinic
Facilitating the translation of fundamental science by identifying, stimulating and funding ideas with potential high value for patients. With expert support on exploratory development, we optimize (pre)clinical development plans.
Open Science
Open Science and FAIR Data
Oncode envisions a future of widespread access to its cutting-edge research and expertise, rooted in the belief that research thrives in a community driven by collaboration, knowledge exchange and interaction. Our Open Science and FAIR data programme provides the means and support to create that.
Drug Repurposing Programme
In order to support researchers in bringing novel therapeutic applications to the patient at affordable costs, Oncode has acquired the next generation Broad Institute Drug Repurposing library. The Drug Repurposing programme enables all Oncode researchers to have access to the library, the technical infrastructure and the expertise that is required to perform (complex) compound screens.

Affordable Health Care
The cost of healthcare in the Netherlands and elsewhere is rising. Oncode is mindful of the need for new innovations in cancer therapy to reach patients at an affordable price. For this reason, Oncode focuses a substantial part of its strategy on the affordability of new medical solutions.
Patient Engagement Icon
Patient Engagement Programme
Oncode’s mission is to outsmart cancer and impact patient’s lives. Since fundamental scientists usually don’t have much direct contact with patients, Oncode stimulates and enables this connection. The goal of the Patient Engagement programme is to bring researchers and patients closer together.
Training Logo
Training Programme
Oncode Institute strives to inspire a constant flow of knowledge to a new generation of scientists. The main goals of Oncode’s training programme are to grow the innovative potential of our research teams and stimulate them to think ‘outside the box/lab’.
Mentoring Icon
Mentoring Programme
Oncode strives to achieve impact, not just scientifically but also personally. The mentoring programme encourages the knowledge and skills of established leaders and supports the next generation of leaders to effectively lead others towards innovation across complex, dynamic organizational settings.

Technology Access
Access to emerging technologies is of great value for Oncode researchers. A team composed of OIs and a business development officer will lead the Technology Access programme.

In verbinding met patiënten
De afstand tussen de wereld van een fundamentele wetenschapper en de wereld van een patiënt is groot; misschien wel te groot. Bij Oncode willen we deze afstand verkleinen met de hulp van patiënten.
