Purpose To identify key factors for successful integration of translational science into cancer care. Results Organisation of the health care system matters to optimally bridge between public and private cancer research, cancer registries and routine care. Currently, there are defcits on various levels of connectivity. These hamper rapid and optimal transfer of innovation. Conclusion To overcome the defcits, strategies of data sharing and infrastructures allowing fast-track implementation of translational research fndings into routine care need to be developed.
