FERO Foundation is a private entity dedicated to oncological research. The project focuses on translational research, which is the transmission of results obtained through basic research to clinical applications. The integration of both areas enables development times for new drugs to be shortened and helps patients to benefit sooner from scientific advances against cancer.
About translational research
Translational research accelerates cancer treatments, so that scientific advances can reach patients in the shortest time possible.
The foundation supports oncological translational research projects driven by national research centres of excellence.
Each year, the Foundation offers multiple grants for Translational Oncological Research. These €80,000 grants are open to researchers working on oncology projects at Spanish centres.
Hundreds of guests attend the two annual fundraising gala dinners organised by the Foundation.
