Welcome at the TCRI!

The Tyrolean Cancer Research Institute

is a private initiative of the Association for the Promotion of Cancer Research in Tyrol, which was found by em. Prof. Raimund Margreiter and HR Hubert Kuprian. The institution has a distinguished financing, questioning and organization. The establishment of the institute was funded by the Tiroler Landeskrankenanstalten GesmbH and donations from the Tyrolean industry as well as private people all over the country (see sponsors). The running costs are covered again by donations, and by the research groups themselves via national and international grant applications. The mission statement of the TCRI is translational cancer research, directly related to clinical application. Therefore, the main focus of our institute is to establish and maintain enforced teamwork between researchers working in the clinics and those working in the laboratory. Donations to the TKFI are tax deductable.
