BIG network

BIG is the largest international network dedicated to finding cures for breast cancer

We are BIG on collaboration

With breast cancer being the most common cancer in women worldwide, global collaboration and a shared vision are necessary to fight this devastating disease efficiently.

Covering more than 70 countries worldwide, BIG encompasses over 50 academic collaborative research groups and data centres focused on breast cancer. Some BIG groups are regional, some are national or even international. Each BIG group is associated with one to several hundred member hospitals and investigators, creating a global network of thousands of institutions and individuals worldwide.

Together we can do more for women and men with breast cancer

The power of collaboration

BIG brings together the world’s leading breast cancer experts, who share their knowledge, experience, and ideas to answer the questions most relevant for patient treatment and care.
