Patients

Innovating for people affected by cancer is at the heart of what we do.

The ECMC Network brings together world-leading scientists and clinicians who drive the discovery and testing of new, more effective treatments.

We owe huge gratitude to the people who take part in early phase trials - often the first patients to be given a new cancer treatment - helping to ensure that discoveries in the lab become treatments of the future.
