The publication lists many of the reasons, why Finland is a leading country in cancer research, such as its healthcare system which is one of the most efficient in the world – offering high value for money spent. It consists of highly educated professionals driving the growth of cutting-edge research and treatment in specialist areas, such as cancer and genetics research.

One objective of cancer research is to develop personalized and effective cancer treatment, especially the utilization of genomic data in diagnostics and treatment selection, and to promote equal and immediate access to clinical examinations for patients. [...] Collaboration between cancer researchers and doctors creates a foundation for evidence-based, multidisciplinary and increasingly individualized care. Based on the average number of citations per clinical cancer publication, Finland is the number one country in cancer research. Each Finnish cancer article receives an average of 26.4 citations.

We are proud of our long-standing collaboration with the Helsinki University Hospital (HUS), which according to the authors is recognized as a world leader in cancer research and care. As the first hospital in northern Europe awarded the Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC) accreditation by the Organization of European Cancer Institutes (OECI), HUS has developed into a nexus of cutting-edge medical research and treatment.
