About ecancer

ecancer is a not for profit, independent organisation with over 10 years' experience in providing easily accessible educational content free to the global oncology community. Our mission is to get the best outcomes for patients by providing lifelong learning opportunities for the oncology community.

We believe in removing financial barriers to accessing research and education. To do this we created ecancer.org, a vast online knowledge bank incorporating an open-access journal, news, video and e-learning (in both English and Spanish). 

All of our resources are available for free and have been developed in partnership with leading global experts.

How it all started

ecancer.org was founded in 2007 by two inspirational oncologists, Prof Gordon McVie and Prof Umberto Veronesi, who shared a  mission to improve cancer communication and education with the goal of optimising patient care and outcomes by creating an open platform to share new discoveries.

Ten years on and ecancer.org is a flourishing online hub for the cancer community. We host over 6000 videos, 1000's of news stories, many hundreds of hours of free e-learning for nurses and doctors and are proud to publish the official open access journal of the OECI and the IEO.

How we are funded

In 2007 ecancer was originally funded by the ECMS foundation, an independent, not-for-profit organisation with charitable status with donations from the Fondazione Umberto Veronesi, Fondazione, the European Institute of Oncology (IEO), the European CanCer Organisation (ECCO) and Swiss Bridge.

Ten years on and the site is self-funded through educational grants, sponsorship, government funding and charitable donations.
