National Growth Fund for better cancer treatment with AI: Oncode-PACT*
The National Growth Fund invests 325 million euro in the Oncode-PACT* plan to accelerate the preclinical development process of cancer drugs. The consortium, which also includes Professor of Bioinformatics Marcel Reinders, will use this funding to fast develop valuable candidate cancer drugs as well as new methods to get these new drugs to the patients for whom they are most effective. This will improve the quality of life of cancer patients while strengthening the future economic earning capacity of the Netherlands. Within the consortium, an important role is reserved for the enabling power of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

An ERC for a 3D vision on the universe’s structure
Akira Endo has received an ERC Consolidator grant for his TIFUUN project, which will create 3D maps of vast volumes of the universe. These will cover both distant places and times – more than 10 billion years to be exact! The better imagery that Akira Endo will generate could revolutionize our insights into the history of galaxies, and the formation and evolution of the so-called ‘cosmic web’.
