The Mission of the Cancer Network Zurich (CNZ) is to facilitate communication between clinicians, research scientists and the public at large in matters concerning diagnosis, prognosis, therapy and prevention of cancer.
The CNZ is also instrumental in the organisation of courses of further education for both clinicians and basic research scientists at postgraduate level, as well as in the organisation of workshops, retreats and seminars that serve to increase the awareness of the latest developments in cancer-related fields.
The CNZ is an integral part of Life Science Zurich, a joint venture of the University of Zurich and the ETH Zurich.
