Carina Dantas is a member of the NCH Survivors Group, in the project ECHoS

Carina Dantas, SHINE’s CEO, participated in the kick-off meeting of the EU Mission on Cancer’s project ECHos | Establishing of Cancer Mission Hubs: Networks and Synergies, in Lisbon. This project is led by AICIB – Agência de InvestigaçãoClínica e Inovação Biomédica and the Portuguese National Cancer Hub, and aims to create conditions for establishing NCMHs in each member state fostering the participation of organized stakeholders and individual citizens in policy dialogues on Cancer.

At the end of the project, the partners aim to integrate what is best from R&I in health and vice-versa, coordinate it with policy towards joint governance and develop an integrated approach.

We hope that this project can create important connections with the RadioVal project, in which SHINE is also a partner, and that aims to evaluate the potential of radiomics to predict response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer patients, using AI.
