The Cancer Drug Development Forum (CDDF) is an international organisation registered in Austria, providing a platform for all stakeholders involved in the development of oncology drugs. The aim of the not-for-profit organization is to accelerate the delivery of effective oncology agents to patients.

Established in 2001 as the Biotherapy Development Association (BDA), the focus was initially around immunotherapy. Recognizing the importance of embracing all forms of oncology drug development, the name of the organization was changed in 2014 to the Cancer Drug Development Forum (CDDF).

CDDF mission is to provide a unique platform to facilitate interactions between all stakeholders (academia, regulatory authorities, policymakers, industry, patient advocacy groups and health technology assessors) to improve the efficiency of cancer drug development.

For the past years, CDDF has strived to leverage the discussion of the most promising advances in oncology drug development, uniting experts from academia, pharmaceutical industry and regulatory authorities in the quest of overcoming the main challenges in cancer treatment.
