The Oncology Institute “Prof. Dr. Ion Chiricuta” (IOCN) was established in 1929 by Professor Dr. Iuliu Moldovan, bearing the name of “The Institute for Cancer Research and Prevention”. It is one of the first cancer centers in Europe. “The Institute for Cancer Research and Prevention” was the first research unit that made a clear aim, as we can see in its title, at “the study of cancer prevention”, in an era when the concept of prevention was only vaguely implemented.
This is the reason why, ever since 10.08.1990, it will bear the name of The Institute of Oncology “Prof. Dr. Ion Chiricuta” Cluj-Napoca.
Our mission is to contribute to the decrease of effects that cancer has in Romania. In this respect, we implement projects that deal with patient care, prevention and research, continuous education of all professionals involved, as well as of the public.
Our vision for the future is to become the top cancer center both at national and regional level. This is entirely possible, considering the exceptional quality of our organization, the excellence in patient care, the research quality, as well as the education provided.
