ASPIC, the Portuguese Association for Cancer Research, is a forum for promoting multidisciplinary research on cancer, welcoming investigators independently from their academic background and professional activity. 

 

Launched in October 2012, at the first portuguese cancer research symposium sponsored by EACR, and officially formed in 2013, ASPIC aims at promoting cancer research in all its aspects and in public benefit.

The association will promote excellence, will help disseminate results, analyze and propose solutions for relevant questions for cancer research and cancer investigators in Portugal, in Europe and at the international level, assuming a special role in connection to portuguese speaking countries in the world. To fulfill its role in the european arena, the association will take advantage of its affiliation with the european partner – EACR.
