The joint institute FuDan University Shanghai Cancer Center – Institut Mérieux laboratory (FDUSCC-IM) created in May 2010 is conducting ambitious research projects in oncology in China. This joint laboratory was created to promote interactions with hospital physicians and place public health as well as medicine at the heart of research activities. A dedicated research laboratory is currently running at the FuDan University Shanghai Cancer Center to develop and identify new biomarkers for early diagnosis of colorectal, lung and breast cancers.
