The Italian Cancer Society (SIC) was established in 1952 and is the longest-lived national association dedicated to oncology operating in Italy.

SIC focuses on experimental, clinical and social oncology, helping to develop different aspects of these fields, such as the promotion of translational research, by stimulating interactions between preclinical and clinical investigators and propelling the transfer of knowledge from bench to the bedside, as well as by establishing relations with similar international associations. SIC organizes its activity through dedicated working groups set up to develop specific lines of research. The Society particularly encourages national cancer research in Italy, by supporting young researchers. To this aim, a Young Investigators group has been created in 2006, to implement the participation of young scientists to the Society.

In 2001, SIC has officially joined the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) and this partnership has yielded clear, immediate benefits for SIC members, the first and foremost of which are the rights and privileges coming from full EACR membership.
