VUmc Cancer Center Amsterdam is one of the five VUmc research institutes, integrating research, education and health
care in oncology and immunology.
The main goal of VUmc CCA is to prevent and cure cancer and immunological diseases, and - as a consequence - increase the survival rate. To accomplish this we perform top-level research to find new treatment modalities and diagnostics in order to provide patients with optimal, individualized medical care. Most of the research activities are integrated with top clinical care, enabling true translational research. In addition, VUmc CCA focuses on improving the quality of life of patients with oncological and immune-mediated, non-oncological diseases.
