OUR MISSION:

Enhancing survival and quality of life for people living with GIST through patient-powered research, education and empowerment, and global advocacy efforts.

These are our Core Values:

Real World Evidence In Action

PROJECT InterGR

Traditional models for cancer research have resulted in many breakthrough treatments for patients, but it is not enough. Project InterGR, the LRG’s approach to research through real world evidence, relies on timely, accurate data from the patient’s perspective, with patient survival as the primary objective.
