The Cancer Center Amsterdam houses one of the largest oncology research centers in the Netherlands, joining cancer researchers from the Academic Medical Center and the VU University Medical Center Amsterdam. Our mission is to improve treatment, life expectancy and quality of life for patients with cancer and to reduce the impact of cancer on health care and society.
With an integrated, multidisciplinary approach we bring findings from the laboratory into clinical practice. We believe that a better understanding of the underlying pathophysiology, combined with technical advances and patient-tailored novel combination therapies, is key to improve outcome for our patients. We therefore focus on excellent research programs in which we connect fundamental and translational research with clinical studies and clinical care (patient care AMC and patient care VUmc).
