The Ramazzini institute is a non-profit social cooperative that has dedicated more than two decades to fighting cancer.
Its activities focus on three areas of action:
- scientific research
- early diagnosis
- spreading information
Scientific research aims to identify and quantify, on an experimental basis, environmental toxic and carcinogenic risks, as well as to evaluate the effectiveness and tolerability of drugs and active ingredients that can be used to prevent the onset and/or progression of tumours.
Early diagnosis is performed at our Outpatient Clinics with the aim of promptly discovering the onset of the tumour and allowing our patients to start treatment immediately.
Spreading information refers to activities intended to make every citizen aware of environmental toxic and carcinogenic risks and of the choices they can make to oppose them.
The Ramazzini Institute collaborates with the Collegium Ramazzini, an international academy with about 180 fellows in 32 countries, experts in the sector of occupational diseases and environmental medicine.
The Collegium Ramazzini’s objective is to advance studies of occupational and environmental medicine and to create a bridge between the world of science and the social/political centres that have to act on the basis of scientific discoveries in order to protect public health in the best possible way. www.collegiumramazzini.org
“It is better to prevent than to cure” is the most important lesson from Carpi-born physician Bernardino Ramazzini (1633-1714), father of occupational medicine.
All of our efforts and activities in the fight against cancer are guided by this important principle: in the research laboratories, in our outpatient clinics, in our meetings with the public, we try to instil the culture of prevention, because that is the only way that we can fight cancer more effectively.
The Ramazzini Institute Non-Profit Social Cooperative (Tax Code – VAT No. 03722990375) is correctly registered in the Non-Profit Organisations Register managed by the Revenue Agency.
