The mission of the Institute for Cancer Research and Treatment (IRCC) of Candiolo is to make a significant contribution to fight cancer by understanding the basics and by providing optimal diagnostic and therapeutic services. The interaction between experimental and clinical expertise allows constant transfer of innovative biological models into the clinic. An “interdisciplinary group of cure” (IGC) is responsible for the management of all breast cancer cases through the coordination of clinical activities, formal auditing and revision of procedures. The breast IGC is composed by all specialists involved in breast care, such as radiologists, breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, pathologists, medical oncologists, radiotherapists, nuclear medicine physicians, psychologists, nutritionists and breast nurses. Over the last 15 years, the IRCC has consolidated its reputation as one of the leading breast cancer centers in Piedmont, with approximately 400 primary breast cancer treated per year and constant scientific production.
