Message from the President

Currently, OOTR is running several important clinical trials in conjunction with high-tech Translational Research to find an optimal treatment strategy and individualised treatment modalities for cancer patients, in particular, breast cancer patients. These well-designated 'bench to bed' and 'bed to bench' fashion studies will bring new perspective to cancer treatment and it might be a pioneering figure of 21st century clinical cancer science.

The battle against cancer is a long and arduous one, but with your unwavering support, the future for cancer patients will surely be brighter.

Sincerely,

Masakazu Toi, M.D. , Ph.D.
President
Organisation for Oncology and Translational Research
