MErCuRIC partners attended a successful meeting in Dublin, Ireland on 15 Jan 2016. Progress made by the consortium in year 2 was discussed and work for year 3 was planned. Our first Phase I study is drawing to a close and plans for the next Phase I work are well underway. We have also advanced the translational technologies that we’ll use to analyze clinical samples in the coming years of the project.
MErCuRIC has been featured as a case study in the 2014- 2015 Annual Report of the Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre (ECMC) Network in the UK.
We’ve just launched a new patient area on the project website – have a look!
