Founded in 2002 under the direction of the Louisiana State Legislature, the Louisiana Cancer Research Center’s mission is to promote education and conduct research in the diagnosis, detection, and treatment of cancer, while pursuing a National Cancer Institute designation.
The center includes more than 200 researchers representing inter- and intradisciplinary activity across the member institutions. Its strengths include molecular genetics and signaling; proteomics; immunology, infection, and inflammation; viral oncology; drug discovery; and minority health and health disparities.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center, in Lebanon, New Hampshire, is one of only 49 NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the country.

These projects are led by 135 cancer research scientists supported by more than $68 million in grants each year from federal and other sources.
