I have had a career dedicated to understanding the foundations of a complex disease such as cancer. Now I fight this malignancy from a different approach. Improving cancer patients’ quality of life by bringing them close to the best that science can provide and helping them letting their voice heard on the decision making of European research policies are my goals.
