The University of Colorado Cancer Center was established in 1988. Our 400+ members are renowned scientists and clinicians from across Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region who are interested in collaborating with others to understand the basic mechanisms of cancer, discover and create new tests, treatments and therapies, design and participate in clinical trials and pursue solutions for preventing and controlling cancer in our community and across the world.
The University of Colorado Cancer Center (the “Center”) has been designated a comprehensive cancer center by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. The Center receives support from the National Cancer Institute under Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) P30CA046934. The cancer center has 6 members: University of Colorado Denver, University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado State University, University of Colorado Hospital, Children’s Hospital Colorado and the Denver VA Medical Center. Our ability to maintain this designation and grant is dependent upon having center members that focus on cancer research.
