Centre of Psychooncology for Education and Research (COPER) was established in Bangalore in 2006 with the avowed objective of establishing the field of Psychooncology through teaching, training, research and service in the field. The ultimate aim of COPER is to create a manpower pool of highly competent psychooncologists so as to integrate Psychooncology into mainstream cancer care in this country.

COPER is an independent, free-standing, registered facility, supported by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India and is associated with the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bangalore. To integrate psychology into mainstream cancer care, COPER is working in tandem with several cancer hospitals in the country for its research and training activities.

COPER is born out of the conviction and the concern of people of eminence from various walks of life: Corporate leaders, scientists, oncologists, mental health professionals, doctors, psychooncologists and good Samaritans, creating a perfect matrix of people, knowledge, brilliance, experience , technology and infrastructure… All culminating in a one point vision and mission: deliver psychosocial care to patients and their families through qualified clinical psychooncologists.
