Let's #KeepResearchCurious

“I think, at a child’s birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift would be curiosity.” Eleanor Roosevelt

We believe in the critical role of curiosity-driven cancer research

We’re campaigning to #KeepResearchCurious because early-stage, curiosity-driven cancer research is the cornerstone of future medical breakthroughs. It takes a long time for these foundational discoveries to translate into clinical treatments, but this journey is crucial.

To continue to save the lives of future cancer patients we must maintain and increase funding to continue exploring the unexpected and unknown. Support for this type of curiosity-driven research opens the door to treatment, prevention and cures we can’t even imagine yet. This potential for exploration and discovery is what makes our work so vital and promising.

At the EACR, we feel excited and optimistic about the future of cancer research. Together, let’s celebrate the incredible potential of basic research and ensure that scientific advancements continue to improve patient care and outcomes.

Let’s keep the spirit of curiosity alive and thriving.
