The new headquarters of the Brazilian government’s International Centre for Cancer Research and Education (CIPE) promise to both strengthen and raise the profile of the country’s oncological R&D, according to the education ministry. The centre, which was inaugurated last week, is located within the São Paulo grounds of the A C Camargo cancer hospital. Billed as one of Latin America’s leading clinical oncology centres, it boasts state-of-the-art technology, including the capacity to perform techniques such as endonasal laparoscopic brain surgery. The complex is operated by the Antônio Prudente foundation, headed by the scientist Dr Ricardo Brentani.
