The application and integration of molecular profiling technologies create novel opportunities for personalized medicine. Here, we introduce the Tumor Profiler Study, an observational trial combining a prospective diagnostic approach to assess the relevance of in-depth tumor profiling to support clinical decision-making with an exploratory approach to improve the biological understanding of the disease.

Mitch Levesque, professor at the University of Zurich and one of the article’s corresponding authors:

“The Tumor Profiler Project was developed by a public/private consortium in Basel and Zürich to improve the precision medicine toolkit for cancer care. Our aim was to translate the incredible advances of single-cell techniques as well as next generation genomic and proteomic technologies, and the most sophisticated computational approaches, into a clinical setting. By harnessing the innovation of world-class research labs in Zürich and Basel, we hope to drive new approaches to cancer diagnostics, monitoring, and therapy.”
