In Addition to providing general cancer care for various cancers, our institute has created speciality group of highly skilled professionals devoted to a select group of cancers. The special focus is on cancer affecting children and women.


Cancer treatments are rapidly evolving and becoming increasingly complex. Smart selection of treatment that will surely be effective is the key to successful cancer treatment today. At NCI, we will provide clinical and laboratory infrastructure to health care professionals to practice the science of prediction in delivering cancer care.

• Molecular diagnostics
• Cancer genomics and bioinformatics
• Biomarker research


Precision at every level of cancer care, such as precision in radiation therapy, precision in extricating tumors through minimally invasive surgical techniques, and non surgical interventional approaches and developing and using latest targeted systematic therapies, will be emphasized at NCI, ensuring low risk and high efficiency.

• Advanced Imaging
• Interventional Radiology
• Therapeutic Nuclear Medicine
• Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery
• Access to Targeted Drugs and Rapid Availability of Novel Therapeutics


Of all the ways to control cancer, especially in India, we believe prevention and early diagnosis are the most important approaches. Through outreach programs, education of public and other health care professionals, we aim to spread and increase awareness about cancer, so as to prevent cancers linked to substance abuse, infections, lifestyle, and to increase awareness about importance of seeking medical attention early to enable early cancer diagnosis.

• Community outreach programs
• Health camps
• Educational activities for healthcare professionals
• Awareness programs in schools to “Catch them young” and prevent substance abuse and adopt healthy lifestyle


Every Participant is different and has unique needs in terms of disease characteristics, host characteristics, goals of treatment and much more. Patient care at NCI will reflect the same belief. Due importance will be given to develop a personalized treatment plan.

• Tumor Board approach for every patient
• Individual case managers
• Application of knowledge of Pharmacogenomics and Pharmacokinetics
• Bioinformatics
• Identifying patient population with unique needs such as women, children, adolescents and very old patients.


At NCI, we will follow an approach to cancer care that identifies all stakeholders as Kark Yoddhas, from the hospital staff, physicians and nurses to family members and other caregivers. In addition, participation and collaboration within and outside the country to facilitate uniform evidence-based cancer care and high quality research will help us fight cancer.

• Active patient participation in treatment decisions
• Knowledge sharing
• Collaboration with leaders in the field of oncology
• Collaborative research
• Exhaustive data compilation
• Increasing participation of primary care physicians.

NCI News Letter


We think cancer is a challenging pause, not a full stop. We’re here to constantly fight for freedom from fear of cancer. That’s why; our approach is Predictive, Precise, Preventive, and Personalized & Participatory. It’s revolutionary, one-of-its-kind and shall change the story of cancer.


We believe the world of cancer care would be a much better place if it can channel the intellectual might of research institutes, pharma companies and academic institutions to develop new and innovative treatments which break new ground in cancer care and make these breakthroughs accessible to each and every patient.
