The New Jules Bordet Institute, the central element in a cancer treatment pole unique in Belgium
The Jules Bordet Institute, a university hospital dedicated entirely to the fight against cancer, is moving to a brand new building on the Anderlecht campus, in immediate proximity to the Erasmus Hospital and the ULB (Free University of Brussels) Faculty of Medicine. Currently occupying 35,000 m², the Institute's new building will offer 80,000m² devoted to its care, research and teaching missions in the field of oncology. With this move the Jules Bordet Institute will increase by more than 50% its care capacity and surface area dedicated to leading edge technology and research laboratories. As the reference centre, it will become the central element in a cancer treatment pole unique in Belgium that will concentrate expertise and innovative infrastructures, train the professionals, and stimulate, structure, coordinate and optimise medical progress and research in the fight against cancer. On the Anderlecht campus, the Jules Bordet Institute will be at the heart of an environment of key players represented by the ULB's Faculty of Medicine, the Erasmus Hospital, the School of Pharmacy, the Faculty of motor Sciences, the Haute Ecole Ilya Prigogine (nurses, physiotherapists,…) and the School of Public Health. It will have all the resources required to pursue its mission of centre of expertise in the field of cancer, at national level by encouraging cooperation between hospitals, as well as at European and international level at which the Institute aims to strengthen its position.
"The new building and this new location represent a unique boost for the Jules Bordet Institute's development and, more widely, for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer pathologies in Belgium," Francis De Drée, General Director.
