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. The umbrella agreements address pre-clinical and clinical research in a way that will allow the two organizations to more efficiently and effectively work to answer future research questions.

The broad nature of these agreements aim to accomplish this by better integrating pre-clinical and clinical research. Scientists will combine resources and expertise in disease intervention and translational science to address key questions in the lab and later translate those findings to the clinic.
