EORTC: The future of cancer therapy #WeAreEORTC


Fifty years ago, the survival rate for
cancer patients was low. Doctors and researchers needed a much better understanding of the disease… and more effective forms of treatment. Today, things are different. We are the European Organisation for
Research and Treatment of Cancer… an international independent leader in
clinical cancer research… …a unique non-profit organisation
with more than 200 dedicated staff. At EORTC, we activate clinical research
by working with more than… …5,300 leading investigators, at 930 institutions… …in over 30 countries. With the invaluable help from over 200,000
participating patients we have… improved the quality of life and survival rate
for cancer patients around the world. How? We design, coordinate and
conduct clinical research… …spanning every aspects
of cancer management, from surgery and radiotherapy
to cutting-edge imaging… …and new systemic therapies. No other organisation carries
out pan-European clinical studies… for all cancer types… …including rare tumours… …or across such a
broad demographic… …leaving no one behind. Think of the larynx,
think of the breast, think of the brain. All practice changing clinical
trials research carried out by us… …showing that organ sparing
treatment can be done. This has massively increased
the value of quality of life… of our patients, not only
in Europe, but worldwide. With precision medicine and innovative
patient centered research, we continue our fight
against cancer. EORTC is at the forefront
of a changing landscape… …implementing new
infrastructures, platforms and… systems for conducting research. EORTC still has a lot of work to do… …but with the commitment of our
