Mission & Vision


The International Centre for Cancer Vaccine Science is a multidisciplinary centre for scientific studies on the molecular mechanisms at the cancer – immune cell interface launched at the University of Gdańsk in partnership with the University of Edinburgh to contribute to the development innovative cancer vaccines and immunotherapy to improve cancer treatment. To fulfill its’ mission, ICCVS conducts research and trains the next-generation of cancer researchers to apply knowledge that advances the understanding of the cancer-immune landscape in Poland and internationally.


Our ambition is to be an interdisciplinary and international centre of excellence that conducts comprehensive research into immunotherapies that could lead to the creation of personalized therapeutic cancer vaccines, followed by their commercialization and implementation into clinical practice.
