Cancer Research Institute, Inc.
June 15, 2011
The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) supports clinical research in a very productive manner. We received specific support for clinical research and development, which was key to the success of our projects. Investigator-initiated clinical studies are very difficult to finance, yet they represent a central element in modern medical centers. It is very important to move clinical research up the value scale, and the CRI plays a crucial role in this process. State-of-the-art academic studies are increasingly needed to promote bio-medical excellence at University Centers, in partnership with patients and their organizations, and with private enterprises.
