Celebrating the #WorldCancerResearch Day at the AECC 2019 Award Ceremony

We were invited to the AECC 2019 Award Ceremony to officially receive the Worldwide Award. This ceremony takes place every year on September 24th, the World Cancer Research Day, to acknowledge the role of scientific research in the improvement on cancer patients outcomes. The public ceremony, chaired by the Spanish Queen Letizia and the president of AECC, reviewed the position of Spanish research in the cancer field in Europe.

Later on, there was a private ceremony in which all the awardees were offered a personalised commemorative painting by the main representatives of the AECC.

We made it to TV news!

Since our WCR grant is finally official, our communication department made a great job diffusing the news everywhere!! We have been featured in newspapers, radio and even TV! It was a great experience and an amazing opportunity to make the project known for general public.
