#WorldCancerResearchDay takes place every 24 September, and is a worldwide initiative to raise public awareness of the importance of cancer research and the extraordinary contributions of cancer researchers worldwide, as well as to promote faster progress to defeat cancer by coordinating research among global organisations. This year’s global campaign, led by the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC), will focus on:

  1. Increasing awareness and knowledge about the value and impact of cancer research
  2. Enhancing sustainable funding sources for cancer research by mobilising individuals, companies and institutions
