Malignant tumors are the second most common cause of death in the Czech Republic and the EU, while half of these deaths can be prevented through prevention. The SALVAGE project deals with the main challenges in research in the field of primary, secondary and tertiary oncological prevention. Its implementation will contribute to the fulfillment of the main goals of the European Plan to Fight Cancer and the Concept of Health Research of the Czech Republic 2030. At the same time, it will bring results applicable in clinical practice, strengthen international cooperation and reduce the research deficit in this area.
