European Cancer Moonshot Lund Center team member Jonatan Eriksson giving a half-time research presentation on his study focused on drug imaging.

The European Cancer Moonshot is proud to be partners with the Spartacus Cancer Foundation, and their ongoing development of their state of the art Bio-Bank. Members of the Cancer Moonshot Lund team were on hand when the new compressors were being delivered to our partners in Szeged, Hungary.

In September, 2020, the European Cancer Moonshot Lund Center expanded our lab with a new tumor tissue preparation section. With this, we can more efficiently process our samples.
