Research projects

'Kom op tegen Kanker' invests millions in innovative research and care initiatives which increase survival rates and improve the quality of life of (ex-)patients. The funded projects always have a direct impact on the patient, but for commercial reasons don't get financial support from the farmaceutical industry.
