IRB Barcelona launches Fuck Cancer, a call to build public awareness and to raise funds for cancer research

Using the slogan Fuck Cancer, IRB Barcelona launches a campaign to raise public awareness about the brutal impact that cancer continues to have on millions of people and to remind everyone that biomedical research is the only realistic way to end this disease.

The slogan Fuck Cancer is inspired by the cry that many individual patients let out against this disease. Our goal is to amplify these cries and make them public.

This campaign calls for the collective mobilisation of resources to speed up the different lines of research underway at IRB Barcelona since 2005 aimed at understanding and bringing an end to metastasis, the cellular process by which the tumour spreads to other organs in the body. Metastasis currently causes 9 out of 10 cancer-related deaths?.





Metastasis is responsible for 9 out of 10 deaths from cancer. Research is the only way to bring this to an end. To stop cancer from killing, join the Metastasis Challenge!

Metastasis Challenge is IRB Barcelona’s challenge to bring people and organisations together in support of research into metastasis. The Metastasis Challenge aims to raise €5M to accelerate the different lines of research underway at IRB Barcelona since 2005 seeking to halt metastasis and stop cancer from killing people.
