Combating Cancer

Objectives

To develop improved patient-oriented strategies for combating cancer - from prevention, to more effective and earlier diagnosis, and better treatment with minimal side effects.

Research will focus on

  • Establishing facilities and developing initiatives for the exploitation of research on cancer in Europe; encouraging the development of evidence-based guidelines for good clinical practice and improved public health strategies by accelerating the translation of existing research results into applications.
  • Supporting clinical research, particularly clinical trials, aimed at validating new and improved interventions.
  • Supporting translational research aimed at bringing basic knowledge through to applications in clinical practice and public health.
  • Other issues related to cancer, such as ageing and cancer, regional differences, psycho-social aspects, palliative care and guidance to support groups.

Approach

Support for research that extends and builds on the knowledge created by genomics and other fields of basic research, and translates it into applications that contribute to the objectives listed above.
