Description

The University of Colorado Cancer Center is a "Center" within
the organizational structure of the School of Medicine at the
University of Colorado Health Sciences Center campus. The major
goals of the Cancer Center are: 1) to contribute through a
coordinated research, clinical treatement, control, and
educational effort to the eventual elimination of cancer as a
human health problem; and 2) to provide the citizens of the State
of Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region with state-of-the-art
cancer therapy, research, control and educational programs. The Rocky Mountain Region and its approximate 5 million
inhabitants is the largest region of the U.S. not served by an NCI
funded Cancer Center. The members of the University of
Colorado Cancer Center currently have more than $18 million in
outside grant and contract support, and provide the major clinical
care for over 30% of the cancer patients in this region. We
provide the primary access to clinical studies for patients in this
region. As our cancer efforts have intensified over the past 2-3
years our needs for interdisciplinary coordination, space, and new
personnel have increased markedly. The support of this core
support grant and institutional support should aid us in
establishing a true center of excellence in cancer. The Cancer Center has 4 major program areas; basic research,
clinical activities, cancer control activities, and educational
activities each with an Associate Director. The Basic Science and
Clinical Programs are subdivided into smaller program areas.
These include Immunology, Molecular Biology, Hormones, Growth
Regulation, Cell Surface, and Chromosomes for the Basic Science
Program and Medical, Surgical, Radiation, Pediatric and Nursing
Oncology for the Clinical Program. The primary planning and
management decisions are made by the Management Committee
which consists of the Director, Associate Directors and Program
Leaders. There are 9 shared core facilities which provide support
for the research efforts of Center members. The Center has a
number of affiliated Schools, Hospitals and Institutes who are
represented on the Cancer Center Board, an Advisory Board which
reports to the Dean and Director. This Board assures the
coordination of all the institutions in the region which are
committed to the control of the cancer problem. Thus, the University of Colorado Cancer Center provides the
leadership for the interdisciplinary study of cancer in the Rocky
Mountain Region.
