The Eliminate Cancer Initiative wrote to us in May 2019 as follows:
“You have clearly demonstrated a commitment to collaborating openly and broadly in the interests of advancing the science of oncology and in hopes of improving outcomes for cancer patients”

DCEz is committed to collaborate with national and international experts, and we have re-consolidated efforts at academic institutions around the globe. We have amassed one of the most multidisciplinary teams with a united focus on accelerating discoveries for diffuse midline gliomas. By leading collaborative efforts across these institutions, DCEz aims to develop a collaborative model of rapid data sharing, accelerated discovery (by reducing redundancies), and generating effective therapies. DCEz is committed to share all generated data regardless of publication status. All molecular data will be shared through CBTTC portals where access is granted to all interested applicants. High levels of data visibility, collaboration, and partnership are major components of DCEz’s Programme.

In order to render our best diagnostic impression and therapeutic recommendation we will need to review images which need to be sent to us via courier on a CD as well as comprehensive medical records. English, French or German languages are accepted. If translated records of other languages are not available, we will be happy to set up a phone call with an interpreter.
We do supply intensive second opinions. Please email us to enquire about this process. Payments can be made using this system: https://www.skrill.com/en/
