CLOSER team will work to improve the diagnosis and prognosis of children with leukemia in Latin America, to reduce the survival gap between the two regions. Over the next five years (2019-2023), researchers from Argentina, Austria, Chile, the Czech Republic, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and Uruguay will work together in a large international consortium.
CLOSER is a public project funded by the European Union.
This information will help to apply risk-directed treatments, minimize undesirable side effects and improve the prognosis of children with leukemia
so they can be easily applied in those countries with fewer resources
develop the required skills in the constantly changing diagnostic technologies
to get to know the real needs of the patients, their families and caregivers
