How can you be involved?
This year, the campaign focuses on the importance of the often unseen work carried out by cancer researchers in labs around the world, and on the need for that work to continue and be supported. The EACR is encouraging its members to join the campaign and spread the message of support on social media. From 07 September post a photo of yourself with your arms crossed and use #WorldCancerResearchDay and #DontStandStill.
Closer to 24 September, look out for the call to keep #OnTheMove, and get involved again. Anyone, researcher or not, can sign the World Declaration for Research on Cancer to join efforts to promote research in order to reduce the number of new cancer cases and improve survival rates and quality of life among cancer patients.
Visit the World Cancer Research Day website for more information and resources to help you get involved.
