Cancer Control Research Center:

Founded in 2019, the Cancer Control Research Center is a non-governmental research center affiliated to the Iran University of Medical Sciences (IUMS). We address fundamental scientific issues in cancer control through multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary high-quality basic and clinical cancer research and collaborative studies with other national and international peers.


Vision statement

In addition to developing high quality evidence-based guidelines and undertaking research studies related to different aspects of cancer control, including cancer registration, prevention, early detection, treatment and palliative care, the Cancer Control Research Center plans to coordinate and standardize cancer-related best practices and research initiatives across the country.


Mission statement

We conduct high quality research programs to address global knowledge gaps relating to cancer and improve the health of all people.

We collaborate with many national and international cancer researchers and health care professionals.

We provide high quality training programs designed for and dedicated to producing competent physicians and research assistants.



In order to accelerate, consolidate and promote cancer control in the community with a research strategy, the Cancer Control Research Center was established to meet the following objectives:

1- Production of useful knowledge, development of valid experiences, and applying them in the control of cancer.

2- Undertaking studies and other research programs in the field of reliable statistics and information, cancer registration, and developing related information and communication technologies.

3- Undertaking research in the field of descriptive and analytical epidemiology, especially primary prevention and reduction of cancer risk, early diagnosis and screening.
