EORTC 50th Anniversary Conference
1962 - 2012: 50 years of Progress Against Cancer
March 15, 2012 - March 16, 2012 | /location/
The EORTC was an initiative ahead of its time, a pioneer in promoting multidisciplinary cancer research and Pan-European collaboration.
The EORTC Network comprises over 300 hospitals and cancer centers in over 30 countries which include some 2,500 collaborators from all disciplines involved in cancer treatment and research. The EORTC offers an integrated approach to drug development, drug evaluation programs and practice changing academic clinical trials that establish State of the Art treatment.
Supporting the network, the EORTC Headquarters is a unique Pan-European clinical research infrastructure based in Brussels, Belgium from where the various activities of the EORTC are coordinated and run.
The conference offered a unique opportunity to gather all the partners (including national research organizations, health authorities, patient advocacy groups, European Commission, cancer leagues, and the pharmaceutical industry) involved in the EORTC mission.
