ABOUT US

SPANISH LUNG CANCER GROUP

The Spanish Lung Cancer Group (GECP), founded in 1991, was one of the first research cooperative groups comprising oncologists that was created in Spain with the purpose of finding a cure for the disease.

MULTI-DISCIPLINARY APPROACH

The group comprises more than 400 specialists (oncologists, thoracic surgeons, radiotherapists and basic researchers) and brings together 150 hospitals throughout Spain. This therefore enables the coordination between different institutions and experts to enhance collaboration in studies as well as to increase quality standards.

COMMITMENT TO RESEARCH

We are committed to and support translational and cooperative research as a key factor in the fight against lung cancer, promoting new lines of work in independent studies and providing support to young talent with the granting of scholarships to new projects. All of this allows us to provide early access to new therapies and drugs in order to make progress in increase survival of patients.

SOCIAL PARTICIPATION

We at GECP participate on a social level in the conduct of testing and mapping for lung cancer in Spain, detecting new alerts and trends and demanding that the Authorities adopt the measures necessary to deal with its incidence and mortality. We also fight for the primary prevention of the disease, supporting social awareness against the consumption of tobacco.
