FUSING RESEARCH AND CLINICAL PRACTICE
Developing new solutions for cancer
The Department of oncology UNIL CHUV is a dynamic combination of scientific platforms and clinical practice. Its focus is the development of innovative, multidisciplinary and interprofessional cancer care.
With its rich legacy, as set in motion in the 1920s by Dr César Roux, it is today a leading centre of excellence for cancer care in Switzerland. The department’s exceptional strength derives from its experience, with over 30’000 consultations per year taking place within its clinical units, a combination of leading medical and scientific professionals in diverse areas of expertise, and its determinedly innovative research.
In this context, it also provides key training and mentoring of the next generation of research scientists and clinicians in oncology.
