Founded in 1989 by Victor Izrael (MD, PhD) and Nicole Bru (MD), APREC is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in the clinical oncology unit of Tenon Hospital in Paris, France (part of the french university hospital system).
APREC’s mission is to promote and develop all forms of research against cancer, in partnership with major national and international research teams.
The “core” of APREC is made up of its researchers. APREC is not an organization that collects and redistributes financing. All funds received go directly and entirely to the work of its researchers.
Researchers at APREC are both scientists and renowned medical oncologists. Thus the research carried out at APREC can be most effectively done “from the molecule to the patient, and from the patient to the molecule.”
