Working to clarify the mechanism of tumorigenesis through large analysis of clinical samples using the latest genomics technology, the centre aims to work on the development of new cancer treatments.

Astellas’ role in the research includes contributions to the advance of oncology studies through the fund lab – to which it will contribute 15 million yen (99,870 pounds) annually for a duration of five years.

The research being conducted at the Genome Medical Science Laboratory is set to continue until August 2014.
