The Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO) is a public non-profit centre assigned to the Catalan Health Service (CatSalut) working exclusively in the field of cancer. ICO is currently the referral cancer centre for almost 50% of the adult population of Catalonia and its approach to the disease is comprehensive, combining, all in one organisation, prevention, patient care, specialised training and research.

Structured as a network, it comprises four centres (ICO L’Hospitalet, ICO Girona, ICO Badalona and ICO Tarragona i Terres de l'Ebre) that work in cooperation with university hospitals (Bellvitge, Dr. Josep Trueta, Germans Trias i Pujol and Joan XXIII), local hospitals, non-profit health research institutes and universities. Thus, a rich, stimulating and multidisciplinary environment and fertile scientific humus for biomedical research is provided to ensure the highest quality provision of health care.
