The Cancer Drug Development Forum – CDDF is the platform for all stakeholders involved in the development of cancer drugs.

The CDDF live webinar regarding “Beating Cancer in Europe – Time to deliver” took place on 10 July 2023 and invited Dr. Alberto Costa (European Commission, IT), Prof. Mark Lawler (Queen’s University Belfast & CDDF, UK) and Teodora Kolarova (International Neuroendocrine Cancer Alliance, BU) to the multi-stakeholder discussion. Here are the key takeaways from the webinar:

  • Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, the EU Cancer Mission and the Lancet Oncology Groundshot provide unrivalled opportunities to achieve better outcomes for patients.
  • Research is a necessity not a luxury – people treated in research-active hospitals have better outcomes than those who are not.
  • Turning data into intelligence and acting on this intelligence is key to driving innovation in cancer drug development.
  • Patient-centred, data-driven and research informed – the best way to conquer cancer.
