The number of cancer patients in India is increasing at an alarming rate in spite of several successful measures in place to create awareness, early diagnosis, access to treatment and improved treatment methodologies. In this backdrop, BHIO has now embarked on a mission to address the unique challenges faced in providing care to the patients that visit the hospital. A research laboratory – Translational Center for Oncology Research, T- CORe, is being established with the objective to develop research validated solutions to address the various challenges in oncology research. The mission of T-CORe is to develop low-cost solutions to oncology treatment targeted to the socio-economically weak strata of the society that is in dire need of treatment to improve their quality of life. The thrust areas of this research laboratory are designed for horizontal and vertical integration with emphasis on interdisciplinary cooperation to support the low-cost treatment by generic switch of various onco-innovator products. This will enable the hospital to treat all the patients without compromising on quality.
In order to achieve this, T-CORe will support timely quality verification of the generics through in-house independent parallel testing, validation and approvals.
The proposed activities of T-CORe to address this mission include:
