The Moscow Hertzen Cancer Research Institute, one of the oldest oncologic scientific organisations in Europe, was founded in 1898. The Institute is the head oncologic organisation of the Russian Federation since 1935.

The organisational structure of the Institute includes 4 epidemiological and statistic departments, 20 clinical departments, 9 diagnostic and 7 basic research and translational departments. The medical staff of the Institute includes more than 300 specialists. Up to 410 patients can be simultaneously treated in the Institute.

The main directions of the clinical scientific work consist of development of organ-sparring and function-preserving methods of treatment of patients with malignant tumors including reconstructive and plastic surgery applying microsurgical technologies and biotechnologies, physical factors (such as laser, cryodestruction, hyperthermia), extended and cytoreductive surgery, photodinamic diagnostics and therapy.

Basic research and translational units develop cell technologies, new biological markers, modifiers and protectors of anticancer therapy, predictive methods of treatment efficacy, and evaluate genetic and protein models.
