Centre for Diagnosis and Research in Cancer (CeDARC)

The Centre for Diagnosis and Research in Cancer- CeDARC was established in 2021 with the aim of creating a state-of-the-art referral centre for cancer diagnostics, education and research in the country. This centre is a collaboration between the departments of Pathology, Anatomy, Genetics and Biomedical Informatics, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Zoology of the University of Colombo.

VISION

To be a leader in the South Asian region in comprehensive cancer diagnosis, research and training for precision health.

MISSION

To establish a state-of-the-art referral centre, with multidisciplinary teams of clinicians and scientists to enable a comprehensive cancer diagnostic service, translational research and capacity building.

Histopathology referral service

cedarc-01

The Department of Pathology provides expert opinions on difficult cancer cases through pathologists who specialize in different sub specialities.

Download the referral form:  Internal | External

Hematology tests

cedarc-02

Several essential tests are required to diagnose hematological malignancies and are available from the department of pathology.

Genetics

cedarc-03

Cytogenetics and molecular genetic test are essential for diagnosis, prognosis, counselling and family screening in cancer. The Human Genetics Unit of the Faculty of Medicine Colombo, established in 1983, is one of the oldest Genetics Centres in the Asian Region.

  Testing services  

General Pathology refresher course

cedarc-06

The general pathology refresher course is a very popular general pathology lecture series conducted targeting post-graduate students sitting for post-graduate exams in histopathology, haematology, surgery, obstetrics and Gynaecology, ophthalmology and Oncology.

Training Program in Clinical Genetics

cedarc-04

This is a 3-months CPD course conducted twice a year that is geared towards improving genomic literacy among medical professionals. It provides training in the basic concepts in human genetics & genomics and their applications in clinical practice. Components related to cancer genetics and genomic medicine are incorporated into the training.

MSc in Molecular Pathology

cedarc-05

This is a 2-years postgraduate degree program with a 1-year research component. The program aims to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes required by medical & science graduates to deliver the latest genetic diagnostics services
