The master of ceremonies, Isabel Martínez-Noriega, welcomed and invited Doña Letizia to give a speech in which she stressed the importance of achieving a national research plan as the one proposed by the association “not only to promote research talent”, but also “to call our society’s attention to the importance of scientific research in general, oncology in particular, because Spain deserves that we all remain committed to that intention to continue promoting research.”

After the ceremony, Queen Letizia went to the third floor where she had a meeting with a selection of researchers awarded the AECC grants.

The AECC is the first entity whose honorary presidency Doña Letizia assumed on a permanent basis, and in which she actively participates, thus recognizing the important work she has been doing for more than 60 years in the fight against cancer, during which she has led the effort of the Spanish society to reduce the impact caused by this disease and improve people’s lives.
