In 2018, we made a commitment to put into words our vision, mission and values.

Our 2018 report focuses on our mission and values that support our overarching patient-forward vision to make a difference in cancer. The words are new, but the sentiments — who we are as a company and the mission we are striving to achieve — have been the foundation of Novocure from day one and will continue to unify us as we move forward.
Together with our patients, we strive to extend survival in some of the most aggressive forms of cancer by developing and commercializing our innovative therapy.
