Project summary

In 2012, India’s flagship cancer hospital Tata Memorial in Mumbai responded to the rapidly growing number of patients and launched a network of cancer centres. The National Cancer Grid of India was established to decentralise, standardise and digitise oncology and develop new forms of treatment that can be used in low- and middle-income countries.

We will analyse the emergence of grid oncology as it seeks to redraw the map of cancer care in India. We will use anthropological research methods to analyse how the grid seeks to transform oncology for the benefit of patients.
