Further Accelerating Specific Treatments for children with cancer
Every year since 2014, to echo the International Childhood Cancer Day, we bring together the main stakeholders of research in pediatric cancer – doctors, researchers, pharmaceutical companies, institutions, politicians, associations and parents – for our annual seminar, at the Senate in Paris.
We discuss about two main areas :
- How to accelerate research and children’s access to innovative treatments
- How to mobilize all key stakeholders to increase the investment in research
Each year, the discussion allows to answer :
- How the research has progressed since the previous seminar
- What are the obstacles that are still slowing down the research and how we can solve them
and we define concrete action plans to accelerate the research for children with cancer.
OUR 5TH SEMINAR
The 5th edition of our seminar FAST took place on February the 10th with Agnès Buzyn, the French Health Minister, politicians and pharmaceutical companies to whom we asked to support several measures in order to accelerate research on pediatric cancer.
