The Tata Translational Cancer Research Centre (TTCRC) is a dedicated research facility embedded within the Tata Medical Center. Initiated in 2014, it moved into dedicated facilities in April 2018. The institute is housed within a dedicated academic space and spread over 3 floors. At TTCRC, a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, scientists, academics and industry professionals collaborate to develop a systems medicine approach in cancer research. This approach is focussed on developing innovative, indigenous, cost-effective and equitable strategies to improve cancer diagnosis; develop treatments that match disease characteristics and are adapted to treatment response; and, identify prognostic and predictive disease biomarkers. These strategies are multi-dimensional and involve an iterative pathway that include clinical studies, high-throughput laboratory investigations, computational strategies to integrate, analyse and model data, hypothesis-based pre-clinical studies and evidence-based translation of findings to clinical practice.

“TTCRC creates an environment for clinicians, scientists and researchers to work together within a cancer hospital. The purpose is to develop innovative partnerships capable of delivering novel solutions for patients with cancer in India. “

Our work is open source and we freely share data and resources that are generated through our research.
