Donation Dutch cancer association (KWF) to ARGOS project

On Sunday October 8th, the 34th edition of the Eindhoven Marathon took place. For the first time in its history, a team from the Dutch cancer association (KWF) participated in order to collect money for scientific research. The team selected the ARGOS project from prof. Peter de With to donate the final amount to. This project aims at endoscopically finding esophageal cancer in an early, curable stage using automated image analysis and machine learning. Two researchers in this project (Fons van der Sommen and Roger Fonolla Navarro) were invited to join KWF at the marathon and collect the cheque with an astonishing amount of € 52,616.87 for their research.
