Cancer research has become a national priority since the first Cancer Plan (2003-2007). Today, The main purpose in oncology is to achieve a "personalized medicine". That means, establish a genetic, molecular and cellular map each cancer to customize treatment by finding new therapeutic targets. The joint national and regional action to support cancer research and today need to progress towards personalized medicine in oncology should lead to the design of adapted training courses for future actors in oncology research, both in the academic field than in the private sector, in both fundamental and translational research, as well as in the training of health personnel, with more and more doctors and pharmacists having dual training. Doctor of Medicine and Doctorate of Universities (MD-PhD) and Doctor of Pharmacy-University Doctorate (PharmD-PhD).
