CancerFutures was launched in 2001 with the aim of increasing knowledge about the complex world of cancer care through people and facts. Cover Story and Masterpiece are two key sections of the magazine that have featured in-depth interviews with some of Europe's most influential oncology leaders - people who have been pioneers of the art and science of oncology over the past 30 years. These interviews comprise a unique collection of stories that give insight into the many personal and professional challenges these leaders have faced in building their careers and pushing forward the boundaries of oncology practice.The European School of Oncology is pleased to launch the CancerFutures Collection which will be of interest to all members of the European oncology community, both today and in the future. This collection acknowledges the tremendous contribution that these leaders have made to cancer care and pays tribute to their dedication and drive. It will provide encouragement for all those confronted with difficulties in building their careers, and will give some inspiration for future leaders.
