"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."
International Hereditary Cancer Centre (IHCC) has built a strong team since its founding in 1992, becoming the first Polish hereditary cancer centre. It comprises 68 persons, with 30 academic staff, including 3 full and associate professors and 13 postgraduate researches.
IHCC sets up and manages a large registry of DNA samples and clinical data. They develop basic and applied research on genetic factors affecting most common forms of cancer. It also operates an out-patient detection and early treatment facility to help the population fight cancer.
