Candiolo Cancer Institute - IRCCS

The Institute for Cancer Research is a private non-profit IRCCS (National Institute for Research and Treatment) founded and supported by the Fondazione Piemontese per la Ricerca sul Cancro-Onlus (FPRC) and operated by the Fondazione del Piemonte per l'Oncologia (FPO): It is linked to the Department of Oncology of the University of Torino. Its mission is a significant contribution to fight cancer, by understanding the basics, and by providing state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic services. The core of the Institute is at the interface between molecular biology and 'precision' medicine. The FPRC provides enduring fund raising for future developments and to foster advanced research

AIRC Special Program in Clinical Molecular Oncology

"Molecular Clinical Oncology" is a novel discipline translating biology into medicine. Targeting single genetic lesions can interfere with tumor growth notwithstanding the multitude of genetic alterations harbored by cancers. This has given an unprecedented clinical value to the concept that cancer is a disease of genes, a dogma in molecular oncology that is now practically exploited by clinicians to set up novel classifications of tumors based on the presence of defined genetic lesions. Thanks to these advances, the idea of giving a patient a drug tailored to the genetic makeup of the tumor is becoming commonplace.
