The National Cancer Centre Singapore (abbrev: NCCS; Chinese: 新加坡国立癌症中心) was established in 1999 as the country's national centre for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. It is also the focal point for cutting-edge cancer research.
Headed by Professor Soo Khee Chee, the NCCS provides a comprehensive range of medical, educational and research activities within a single institution; and practices a multi-disciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment. The Centre, which is located in the Outram Medical Campus, is Southeast Asia’s only full multi-disciplinary sub-specialist centre for cancer and is committed to provide high quality and cost-effective sub-specialty oncology services.
As one of the leading hubs for cancer research, its scientists and researchers have published more than 1,200 papers in the past decade and established collaborations with some of the top medical, research and biopharmaceutical institutions worldwide.
In addition, the Centre is a leading teaching institution for post-graduate cancer education that trains and offers fellowships for many local and overseas doctors, nurses, para-medical professionals and researchers.
