Gujarat Cancer & Research Institute (GCRI) established in 1972, is an autonomous body jointly
managed by Government of Gujarat and Gujarat Cancer Society (GCS). GCRI is also recognized
as a major Regional Cancer Center by Government of India.
Year 2009-2010 was a year of many clinical, research and community directed activities projecting
the excellent team work of the staff. It is the year of introduction of Sanjivani Rath - modern mobile
diagnostic services for rural Gujarat, introduction of Health Passports for awareness and prevention
of cancer and major non communicable diseases, and also it is the year of establishing telemedicine
ties with various district hospitals of our state. We have initiated oncology nursing training to cater
the need of specialized oncology nurses. MCI has increased our seats for DM Medical Oncology
and MCH Surgical Oncology courses from this year. We have completed more than 100 bone marrow
transplantation this year. We have installed new cobalt machine marketed by BARC this year to
cope with the heavy work load of our radiology services.
We gratefully acknowledge the constant support from Government of Gujarat and Gujarat Cancer
