Portrait

The Institute of Oncology Research (IOR), established in 2003 in Bellinzona, Switzerland, hosts researchers from all over the world performing basic and translational research in oncology with special focus on:

  • cancer biology
  • genomics
  • molecular oncology
  • experimental therapeutics.

At the Institute of Oncology Research we believe that science is constantly evolving to improve our understanding of human cancer.

The efforts of our researchers and the resources of the institute are directed towards this challenge, with a commitment to discovering practical and far-reaching solutions to a disease that still impacts on the everyday life of people around the world.
