Oncology. research. Strategy 2025. University of Navarra
One in four people die from cancer and, if the global population is considered, it is already the leading cause of death. And despite the enormous advances made in recent decades, a significant proportion of cancer patients do not benefit from the therapeutic strategies currently available. At the same time, there is a group of tumors for which current treatments are not effective.
With almost five decades of tradition in clinical attendance to oncology patients and preclinical, translational and clinical research in cancer, the University of Navarra started in 2017 the development of the Cancer Center Clínica Universidad de Navarra (CCUN) with the goal to contribute more decisively to overcome this disease.
The SDGs, adopted globally, chart the way forward to end poverty, protect the planet and work towards peace and prosperity for people.
The project 'Oncology' aims to contribute in particular to the objectives "Health and well-being", "Education quality", "Gender equality", "Industry, innovation and infrastructure", "Peace, justice and strong institutions" and "Partnerships to achieve the goals".
