The foundation

In Switzerland, four out of ten people develop cancer during their lifetime and one out of two patients can be cured. Better recovery rates can be envisioned thanks to the progress achieved in research and the applications thereof.

The ISREC Foundation applies its means to concretizing this objective, hoping to contribute to the development of new therapies in the near future.

The ISREC Foundation has actively supported experimental cancer research for more than fifty years.
