Researchers from the Warsaw University of Life Sciences WULS-SGGW are developing new methods to combat cancer
Cancer is the second most common cause of death in developed countries. Statistical data from the last few years indicate that cancer is responsible for about a quarter of all deaths. Although the number of cases continues to grow, diagnostic methods are improving, and if the cancer is detected early, it can often be effectively treated. This is partly because scientists and doctors from around the world are becoming more knowledgeable in the field of oncology and they discover more effective ways to diagnose and treat cancer. Researchers from Warsaw University of Life Sciences had significant contribution to the development of knowledge about cancer. At WULS-SGGW, several major projects aimed at combating cancer are carried out.
Magdalena Król, Associate Professor from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Warsaw University of Life Sciences, has won a European Research Council Grant to fight cancer.

Its importance is highlighted by many scientists, science popularizers and publicists, such as an American physicist and futurist Michio Kaku in his book "Visions. How science will change the world in the twenty-first century ". This raises the following question: are we, as a state and a society, prepared for this challenge? It is obvious that Poland should build its strength, inter alia, by supporting progress of science.
At Warsaw University of Life Sciences, the Biomedical Research Center was opened.
