Horizon 2020 showcases the achievements of PanCareSurfUp

The new research framework of the European Union, Horizon 2020, published a very interesting article showcasing the aims and achievements of the project PanCareSurfUp – PanCare Childhood and Adolescent Cancer Survivor Care and Follow-Up Studies, in which SIOPE is deeply involved.

PanCareSurfUp estimates that there are between 300,000 and 500,000 survivors of childhood cancer in Europe. Established in 2011, this five-year project carries out epidemiological studies of cardiac disease, secondary cancers and late mortality among survivors of childhood and adolescent cancers across Europe. Operating on an unprecedented pan-European scale, since numbers of survivors in any individual country are too small for meaningful data to be collected, the project involves 16 European universities, hospitals, research institutes and cancer-related networks and is following approximately 80,000 long-term survivors.
