Improving the quality of oncologic pathology diagnosis is also immensely important, as the overwhelming majority of patients will be diagnosed through analysis of a tissue sample.

A local multidisciplinary and inter-institutional team was assembled to coordinate the development of the different project outputs, in consultation with relevant experts in the city and external experts nominated by the technical cooperation partners of City Cancer Challenge (C/Can). The final outputs will be endorsed by the City Executive Committee and the relevant authorities for implementation.
