Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO)

CNIO's goal is to develop new and more effective approaches to preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. Apart from scientists widely regarded as among the world’s best, we are also positioned to take advantage of a pharmaceutical discovery program.
Here at the CNIO, we are proud of our ongoing commitment to prepare both men and women for a career in the sciences and promote women to become Research Directors.
The CNIO is likewise committed to reaching out to society by engaging with the non-specialist public through projects such as ”CNIO Arte” or the “CNIO Friends”. The latter is a platform for individual giving in which people are invited to make donations that get channeled directly to CNIO research projects. Help us in this undertaking – help us to stop cancer in its tracks! Become a CNIO Friend.
