"The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) unites and supports the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to ensure that cancer control continues to be a priority in the world health and development agenda."
The Fondazione IRCCS - Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori (INT) is one of the main national and international referral center for the treatment and study of cancer. Our organization and management are dedicated to finding solutions to the clinical problems posed by evolution of cancer types in every stage of their development, through prevention, prediction, diagnosis and treatment (surgery, medicine, radiotherapy), rehabilitation, psychologic support, pain therapy and palliative care. Our mission is not only to provide existing treatments but also to lay the foundations for new ones by pursuing preclinical and clinical research and swift translation into better prevention, diagnosis, therapy, rehabilitation and improved quality of life.
Since 1962, Fondazione IRCCS "Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori" has been full UICC member.
