Rare Tumour Group

Mission Statement


  • We aim to accelerate the development of new therapies derived from a solid scientific rational for women with rare gynaecological cancer through European collaboration.

  • We aim at using the multidisciplinary expertise available within ENGOT to develop trials covering an area of clear unmet need.

  • We aim at strengthening the scientific basis including in these initiative, a strong collaboration with the translational group, and biobanking activities.




  • To develop a network of collaborations among centers and investigators within ENGOT to design clinical trials with strong scientific rational in rare gynaecological cancer.

  • To develop novel trial designs that allow efficient assessment of new compounds and make it feasible to also investigate rare histological and molecular subtypes.

  • To offer pharmaceutical companies a read-to-go, efficient structure and academic expertise for accelerated clinical development of their compounds in their pipeline.

  • To involve all the groups in this strategic plan that will allow ENGOT to promote a significant gain in the clinical outcomes of many rare tumours.
