Stemming the blood cancer tide
With September being ‘Blood Cancer Awareness Month’, this issue of Research*EU Magazine is shining a light on this group of diseases affecting the blood, bone marrow or lymphatic system. Thankfully, survival rates over five years have grown but as many of the conditions within this diverse group are cancer still continue to be fatal, constant research into new treatment options is needed. Thanks in part to EU-funded research under the FP7 and Horizon 2020 programmes, European scientists have been at the forefront of game-changing new treatments.
Besides these projects, which are all introduced in this magazine, others are presented across nine themes of research: health, society, energy, environment, aquatic resources, industry, information and communication technologies, security and fundamental research. The magazine closes with a list of upcoming events hosted by or involving EU-funded research projects.
