AstraZeneca and M. D. Anderson Cancer Center form umbrella scientific collaboration agreements

AstraZeneca and The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, a recognized world leader in cancer research, today announced entering into scientific collaboration agreements that will allow for integrated pre-clinical and clinical research on new treatments for cancer, focusing initially on aerodigestive diseases (e.g., lung cancer, head and neck cancers or colorectal cancers).

These renewable, three-year, master agreements establish a framework for collaboration on a variety of initiatives across a range of AstraZeneca oncology products and research projects.
