Un gran impulso para un nuevo programa de investigación oncológica

La investigación oncológica en España está a punto de recibir un gran empujón. El equipo del proyecto Talento AECC, financiado con fondos europeos, creará un nuevo programa de becas de investigación en la Fundación Científica de la Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer (FCAECC). Esta entidad filantrópica privada se encarga de financiar la investigación oncológica de excelencia (desde la investigación básica hasta la aplicación clínica) en España y actualmente respalda 525 proyectos de investigación en este campo. El objetivo del nuevo programa de movilidad transnacional es atraer a España a los investigadores extranjeros con más talento y experiencia. El propósito general del proyecto es mejorar la prevención, el diagnóstico precoz, el seguimiento y el tratamiento de los enfermos de cáncer, que son ámbitos de intervención fundamentales de la misión sobre el cáncer de Horizonte Europa.
