It began its journey in 2017 as a joint initiative of the Clínica Universidad de Navarra, the Cima Universidad de Navarra and the Faculties of Medicine, Nursing, Science, Pharmacy and the Tecnun School of Engineering, although they reflect the evolution of more than 40 years of experience in cancer at our university.
