Research groups

Researchers in the SAKK network regularly exchange scientific knowledge and findings in indication-specific project groups, working groups and specialty sections. Study proposals are initiated at these expert meetings, then developed further and presented to the board for appraisal.

The project groups are made up of medical oncologists and representatives of other disciplines, and they concern themselves with the disease areas defined as research priorities. The working groups include representatives from other oncological fields of interest. The working groups may also come up with project proposals. The sections include representatives from different disciplines who are involved in SAKK studies. The sections maintain contacts with other specialist bodies and take on an important educational function.
