Fero is a private foundation whose objective is to contribute to the development of cancer research.
Thanks to private donations, the foundation has established numerous scientific research laboratories.
The project emphasizes translational research, that is, the transmission of results from basic research to clinical practice. The integration of these two areas allows for shorter drug approval times and helps patients benefit more quickly from scientific advances against cancer.
One of the main achievements of the Fero Foundation has been the creation of the Breast Cancer Center, the only one of its kind in Spain. Fero Foundation is also the promoter of the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO), an international reference institution in the field of cancer research.
