National Clinical Trial Manager (M/F)

September 1st 2020

The Belgian Society of Paediatric Haematology and Oncology (BSPHO) was founded in 1996 as a collaboration between professionals of the recognized Belgian centers in paediatric haemato-oncology to share expertise and knowledge to improve treatment of childhood cancer and patient care. The number of children and adolescents with cancer is relatively small so participation in large (mostly academic) clinical trials is essential to gather enough data to draw meaningful conclusions regarding better treatment options. Many children and young adults with cancer are treated in large clinical trials since several decades. This has contributed to the better cure rates for children with cancer in general. The national coordination team of the BSPHO coordinates the set-up and follow-up in Belgium of international academic studies that are chosen collaboratively by the Belgian PHO centers.
