Fundación Josep Carreras (Spain)

Scope of organisation

BLOOD CANCER support organisation (non-CLL-specific)


In 2010 we created the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC), one of the few centres in the world devoted entirely to leukaemia and other haematological malignancies. The IJC wants to promote the development of research in the field of oncohaematology, accelerate the implementation of new treatments, improve care and patient survival, contribute to the training of new researchers and establish synergies with other national and international research groups.
