ROS1ders – Help to accelerate ROS1 research!

Because ROS1+ lung cancer is a rare type of lung cancer, occurring in 1-2% of non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC), Stichting Merels Wereld has joined forces with UMCG and Hanzehogeschool Groningen and initiated a scientific research project. We ask you for you contribution in our project in order to accelerate research on our type of lung cancer.

On this website, we would like to inform you how you can participate! 

If you have a medically necessary biopsy, pleural fluid drainage, or cancer surgery in the future, please consider (if possible) donating your excess tumour tissue or fluid to OncoLifeS at the University Medical Centre Groningen (UMCG) for cell culture assays.  Read the information carefully, you can navigate through the buttons below.

If you have more questions, please contact . Or you can contact ROS1der Merel Hennink through:
