The National Centre of Oncology (CNAO) was created with the goal of treating tumors by using protons and carbon ion particles belonging to the category of hadrons.

The CNAO Foundation is also a Centre of Research and Development, whose activities range from clinical and radiobiological research to translational research with the objective of providing continual improvements in the capacity to cure.

Following-up all the patients after hadron-therapy in the Centre and in all the hadron-therapy Centres around the world, the effectiveness of the therapy will be established. This knowledge will affect therapy protocols, with by-products on Centre technologies.
