The Swiss Pediatric Oncology Group (SPOG), is an association whose objective it is to advance clinical, i.e. directly patient-focused paediatric cancer research. Our members are hospital departments in Switzerland that are taking care of children and adolescents with cancer and blood diseases. They are located at the university hospitals in Bern, Basel, Zurich, Lausanne and Geneva and in the children’s hospitals of St. Gallen, Lucerne, Aarau and Bellinzona. Other members are the Childhood Cancer Registry, as well as representatives of paediatric surgery, radiology and pathology.
SPOG works nation-wide in Switzerland and maintains intense cooperation with leading international research groups.
