The Emanuele Cancer Research Foundation Malta (ECRFM) is a non-profit making organisation set up between the Malta Trust Foundation Fondazione Terzo Pilastro Internazionale and the University of Malta
The Foundation facilitates excellence in cancer research and collaboration among scientific, clinical and psychosocial disciplines. The Foundation provides information and education about cancer to the public and its representatives.
It significantly attracts and trains young investigators in an environment that demonstrates the interrelatedness of different approaches in cancer research and applications in practice.
In addition, through present and future international research collaborations, the institute is in a position to transform itself into a regional, Mediterranean Cancer Research Hub and subsequently, into an International Research Centres Platform.
