Research

Research

Cancer research is the study of cancer, from its basic biology to the effects of treatment. Researchers who study cancer collect and analyse information about every aspect of the disease. This includes:

  • What causes cancer
  • How cancers form
  • The different ways to treat cancer
  • How cancer can be prevented

The final goal of cancer research is to produce effective treatment and prevention for the many different types of cancers around today.

Sarcoma patients will benefit from research on: translational medicine (i.e. the translation of basic discoveries to clinical applications), the development and validation of new therapies, methods for health promotion and prevention including the promotion of healthy ageing, diagnostic tools and medical technologies, and sustainable and efficient healthcare systems.

Research Networks and National Expert Groups encourage collaborative approaches to research in inter-disciplinary settings and to facilitate a multidisciplinary approach to studying ways to improve cancer care.
