Purpose of establishment:
In Japan, as elsewhere, cancer is still one of the most
difficult diseases to prevent, to treat and to cure.
Thus, it is a continuing national concern.
If we are to control cancer effectively, we must study
its frequency, natural history and etiology, then take
positive preventive steps as well as provide adequate
early diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
To promote counter measures against cancer, it is
necessary to conduct basic and applied research as well
as to diagnose and treat cancer patients at specialized
institutions. Other essential steps are the training of
specialists and the dissemination of new techniques.
For this purpose, the Japanese government founded the
National Cancer Center in Tokyo in 1962. In concert and
with the primary objective of cancer control, Aichi
Prefecture founded in 1964 the AICHI CANCER CENTER, a
hospital and research institute, the first in the Tokai
The Research Institute consisted of 9 Divisions and 2
Units when it started. The Institute was reorganized
with 10 Divisions and 4 Units in 1985 and was further
re-organizd with 9 Divisions in 2000 to promote
preclinical and epidemiological studies
