CANSEARCH is a public utility foundation founded in 2011 in collaboration with the University Hospitals and the Faculty of Medicine of Geneva.
It is entirely dedicated to funding research aimed at improving the understanding and treatment of cancer and blood diseases in children. To do this, the first research platform in pediatric oncology and hematology (CANSEARCH Research Laboratory) was created bringing together top researchers in this field. The research work carried out within the platform makes it possible to adapt the therapeutic strategy with a personalized, innovative and multidisciplinary approach to offer children optimal survival chances, reduce relapses while minimizing the sometimes irreversible side effects of treatment.
The CANSEARCH research platform is an important player in an international network and offers young patients the fruits of the most advanced research and studies while raising funds to support cancer research done by the CANSEARCH Foundation.
