Work Package 11 – Adolescents and young Adults with cancer

Work Package 11: Adolescents and young Adults with cancer

Such challenges include unique epidemiology, specific tumor biology, insufficient awareness of cancer in this population, diagnostic delay, limited inclusion in clinical trials, psychosocial needs etc. Overall, this WP will ensure a link with the Working Group of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) and the European Society for Paediatric Oncology (SIOPE) on adolescent and young adults with cancer.
