In 1908, Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research (JFCR) was established as the first organization in Japan specialized in cancer to respond to the worldwide call. Since the establishment, Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research has contributed to the development of cancer research and treatment in Japan as the leading organization with the ethos “Aiming to Improve the Well-Being of People Everywhere by Achieving Better Cancer Control.”
Recently, there is significant progress in the cancer research at genetic level. JFCR also conducts the comprehensive analysis of gene at Genome Center as well as various basic researches at the Cancer Institute. Based on the results of these researches, the efforts to realize the personalized medicine for individuals are made with the analysis of susceptibility of cancers to anticancer drugs and the risk of side effect occurrence. The Cancer Institute Hospital provides the coherent patient-oriented team medicine from advanced medical technology to palliative care to play the central role of designated cancer care hospital.
We have operated the research institute and hospital by carrying out various measures in both fields because we place the most emphasis on “the quality of medicine” for our mission to control the cancer. We sincerely appreciate all supports from public and related organization. Without these supports, the development of our foundation as private medical sector was impossible.
