Oncology has made more progress in two decades than in 2,000 years: mortality has decreased[1] (for all cancers combined, the 5-year survival rate has risen from 25% to more than 50%), discoveries are proliferating, and the number of clinical trials[2] and new drugs[3] is constantly increasing (more than 100,000 trials and 30 drugs by 2021). However, the game is far from being won. Cancer remains the second leading cause of death in the world (the first in developed countries[4]), the number of new cases is rising sharply (due to aging and population growth) and the survival rate varies from nearly 100% to 0% depending on the cancer.


The first lesson to be learned from these 20 years of research and innovation is that cancer is much more complex than we had imagined. To overcome this complexity, we need boldness and creativity but also a lot of know-how and collective intelligence. In order to accelerate the development of innovative diagnostic and therapeutic solutions, the PSCC gives innovators (project leaders, start-ups, entrepreneurs and industrialists) access to the best experts in the field, to disruptive technologies as well as to the data, funding, space and network that are essential to their success.
