European Molecular Tumour Board Network

Invitation to join the European Network for Personalized Oncology and its European Molecular Tumour Board Network

– a European-wide initiative by the EU cluster project canSERV –

We would like to invite anyone involved in a Molecular Tumour Board (MTB) – e.g., physicians, scientists, patient representatives, ethicists – to join the European Network for Personalised Oncology (ENPO) and its European Molecular Tumour Board Network (EMTBN), both being established through the EU cluster project canSERV (visit canSERV About). The European Network for Personalised Oncology (ENPO) aims to provide state-of-the-art guidance and support to accelerate the implementation of personalised oncology. Through canSERV, the ENPO will establish the European Molecular Tumour Board Network (EMTBN), which aims to guide the establishment of MTB Standard Operating Procedures (consensus standards) and the set-up of a public registry of MTB recommendation outcomes. The ENPO and EMTBN will not be limited to the canSERV consortium partners but open to the wider community to be as inclusive and engaging as possible. Although participation in the networks is on a voluntary basis, some specific activities can be considered for cost reimbursement for those who will actively contribute.


The framework for these activities is created by the overarching canSERV project, in alignment with the EU Cancer Mission. The 19 canSERV partners offer a comprehensive portfolio of interdisciplinary and customised oncology services across the entire cancer research continuum. Over the next three years, canSERV will offer more than 400 different unique, relevant, and valuable cutting-edge services for Personalised Oncology for the public and private (e.g., start-ups) community of cancer researchers, all accessible via a common platform and provided by complementary Research Infrastructures (RIs [1]) in a synergistic, transnational way. As such, canSERV capitalises on the critical mass of experts and cutting-edge services offered by the participating RIs and their extended networks, far extending the 19 partners to around one hundred.
