European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer
Avenue Emmanuel Mounier 83/11
The European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) is an international, non-profit, research organization dedicated to conducting, developing, coordinating, and stimulating basic and clinical research on cancer and related problems. The EORTC was established in 1962 by a group of oncologists who felt that extensive, comprehensive research in such fields may often be beyond the means of individual European laboratories and hospitals, and could best be accomplished through multidisciplinary, multinational efforts. The EORTC's primary objective is to raise the standard of cancer treatment through the development of new drugs and new regimens. The EORTC consists of a pan-European network involving more than 2,500 clinical investigators and scientists in more than 350 hospitals and research institutions in over 30 countries.
