Aim of the joint call JTC 2012 aims at funding transnational innovative projects in cancer prevention, focused on the research of the mechanisms responsible for maintaining a healthy `STATUS` vs. those underlying cancer development, and clearly oriented towards a rapid translation of the existing and newly acquired knowledge into individual- or patient-tailored interventions at highest potential for cancer control.
