The Ceremony of establishment of the International Center of Excellence in Cancer Research

2012.4.13
    Cancer is one of the leading causes of mortality in the world. Many interventions have been developed to circumvent issues that were encountered in diagnosis, treatment and prevention, yet there is still the need for improvement. Thus, the goal of the project of "International Center of Excellence in Cancer Research" is to combine existing strengths of both cancer centers in Taiwan, College of Medicine, National Taiwan University and China Medical University & Hospital, and MD Anderson Cancer Center, USA and to improve diagnosis, treatment and prevention for cancer patients in Taiwan. The research will be focused on discovering new biomarkers, molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis and metabolomics, signal transduction pathways of cancer cells and the role of cancer stem cells with the combination of drug discovery and development of novel targeted therapy.
    Thank you for attending the selection activity of the logo design of International Center of Excellence in Cancer Research, before. The opening ceremony of our center will be held at 11:00 pm on April 13, 2012 (Friday morning). Welcome everyone join us and give us any kind suggestion.
  
 
 

Selection result of Logo Design of International Center of Excellence in Cancer Research

2012.3.15
    The Logo Design selection activity of "International Center of Excellence in Cancer Research" was closed on March 15, 2012. Through discussion, the logo that designed by Dr. Kang-Yi Su has been selected. The following are the logo and its' design principle that provides by Dr. Su.
Logo
 
  1. Ribbons are on behalf of the care and treatment of cancer patients.
  2. The three ribbons are on behalf of the cooperation of National Taiwan University, China Medical University, and MD Anderson in International Center of Excellence in Cancer Research. The three arrow heads on the right end of the ribbons represent the pursuit of excellence and the pursuit of progress. In the middle, we used double helix to indicate the exploration of cancer genomics.
  3. The English names of our three units are shown under the ribbons by indicated color of their school logo.
  4. The four circles represent four millstones from basic research to clinical application including genes, gene products (including the modification of genes or proteins), animal model exams, and development of clinical drugs.

From now until March 15, a Logo Design selection activity will hold in our center, everyone is to attend us try to design the logo of our "International Center of Excellence in Cancer Research".It should be contained the goal of our center establishment.
