Inauguration of the Botton-Champalimaud Pancreatic Cancer Centre

Today at 3:00pm, the new Botton-Champalimaud Pancreatic Cancer Centre, in Lisbon, will be inaugurated.

Inauguration of the Botton-Champalimaud Pancreatic Cancer Centre

This center - resulting from a partnership between the Champalimaud Foundation and the Mauricio and Charlotte Botton couple, who contributed with 50 million euros to its construction - is the first in the world simultaneously dedicated to the research and treatment of pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest types of cancer.

Combining state of the art services and equipment, aimed at guaranteeing the well-being and comfort of patients, supported by the most advanced techniques, and resulting from an exclusive aesthetic approach, this center will comprise areas of research laboratories, a day hospital, a surgical center, as well as inpatient and intensive care facilities.

The opening ceremony will be attended by the Kings of Spain, Felipe VI and Letizia Ortiz, and the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

You can follow the ceremony online, starting at 3 pm, on the Champalimaud Foundation page and on YouTube and Facebook channels.
