Cancer is a debilitating disease that can occur in any stages of human life. This disease exposes the patients and their families to great suffering given its demanding therapeutic course. With the aim of helping such patients, the Cancer Research Center was officially started operating in 2006 to identify modern treatment approaches for adult and pediatric patients suffering from cancer.

This center has made efforts to present clinical and counseling services in order to maintain and improve the quality of patients' lives during and after different phases of treatment and after that by creating an information bank consisting of data related to new and old diagnoses and treated cases of cancer. Moreover, this database helps keep the researchers, health professionals, and patients updated and informed regarding the latest progress and therapeutic methods in this domain.

One of the most important solutions for the treatments of cancer is to inform and educate the patients. Therefore, the center has made efforts to increase the level of patient's knowledge and properly motivate patients to face the disease in an appropriate and healthy way by means of providing training related to the nature of cancer, as well as early and late effects of cancer treatment. Hereby, the center has promoted general and technical knowledge through reporting the results in academic conferences and mass media.
