The Melbourne eResearch Group is the technology provider for the European Network for the Study of Adrenal Tumours – Cancer project (www.ensat-cancer.eu).This EU Framework 7 project was funded in 2011 and runs for five years. The work involves the implementation of a rich collection of adrenal tumor-related databases (aldosterone producing adenomas (APA), adrenocortical carcinomas (ACC), non-aldosterone cortical adrenal adenomas (NAPACA) and pheochromocytomas/paragangliomas (Pheo/PGL); biobanking support (including sample labelling and tracking), and a collection of major clinical trials. More information on adrenal tumours and the ENSAT network is available at www.ensat.org. Papers describing the ENSAT-Cancer infrastructure and results from its usage are available at http//:www.ensat-cancer.eu/publications.
