The PREDICT-Meso Network is comprised of expert mesothelioma researchers from across the world.
Together the teams hope to better understand how Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (MPM) develops from its early stages and translate this into more effective diagnosis and treatment for patients.
PREDICT-Meso encourages new members to join the Network to collaborate and share knowledge and data – helping to maximise the impact of knowledge and data gathered from individual sites and studies.
Access to a directory of mesothelioma knowledge (skills sets; techniques; tissues/data)
Introduction to Network members for collaboration, advice, help with study design
Potential to be part of exciting new studies in mesothelioma, building reputation - both academic and as a successful study site
Access to an inventory of mesothelioma data and tissue to aid studies and collaborations
Access to the data and tissue in these inventories is via a formal application process
Sharing of research data:
- Contributing to a central repository of research data, minimising repetition and creating a culture of institutional learning
- Adding value and meeting data sharing requirements of funders
Leverage PREDICT-Meso resources and partners in new funding applications (note prior approval and identification of necessary network resources is needed for this)
Access to events, including Schools and Investigator Meetings
Membership is a requirement for those wishing to access tissue and/or data via the PREDICT-Meso Research Tissue Bank (RTB)- please see the RTB page for more details
