The Astellas Oncology C3 Prize®:

Changing Cancer Care through Innovative, Non-Treatment Solutions

The Astellas Oncology C3 Prize is a global challenge designed to inspire innovative non-treatment ideas that may improve the lives of cancer patients, caregivers, and their loved ones. This year's challenge focused on solutions for cancer care in low- and middle-income countries, which bear a disproportionate burden of the global cancer epidemic.

The Category Winners pitched their ideas to improve cancer care in a live forum at the Union for International Cancer Control's (UICC) 2018 World Cancer Congress on October 3, 2018 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

We would like to congratulate the C3 Prize Grand Prize and Category Winners and thank everyone who applied.
