The Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Foundation

Who are we and what do we do?
The employees of the Netherlands Cancer Institute (Antoni van Leeuwenhoek) work to provide the best possible care for people with cancer. Multidisciplinary teams of surgeons, oncologists, radiologists and nurses search continuously for the best treatment plans for each individual patient. The Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Foundation collects donations to make more cancer research possible.

Improved treatment options
With its ongoing ambition to unravel the riddles of cancer and to improve its treatment options, the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) combines healthcare for cancer patients with high-quality and innovative research. This leads to new, improved treatments arising regularly, and these treatments being implemented right away.

High-quality cancer research
The Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Foundation is the link between you and our research. Each year, the research board makes a selection from among various research proposals. This way, we ensure that your contribution is used solely for the financing of high-quality cancer research.

How can you support us?
The Netherlands Cancer Institute's aim is to provide each patient with the right care. For this, we need top scientists, equipment, time and especially money. You can help. Every donation is welcome - no matter the amount - and all contribute to cancer research at the NKI.
