National R&D Program for Cancer Control

Initiated in 1996 as part of the 10-year Plan for Cancer Control, the National R&D Program for Cancer Control (NRDPCC) has been supporting a wide range of research projects conducted by industry, academia and research institutes. The NRDPCC focuses on identifying cancer etiology, developing novel prevention, diagnosis and treatment methods for common cancers in Korea, finding more efficient ways to improve quality of life of cancer patients and their families, and conducting policy researches to enhance the quality of cancer registration and statistics. This initiative has made a great contribution towards enhancing the Korean cancer scientists' R&D capabilities, thereby expanding Korean cancer community's scientific horizon.

The National Cancer Control Planning Board, one of the NCC's internal organizations, plans, implements and evaluates the initiative as the program's funding agency.
