NCI Designation

NCI designation badge

The Case Comprehensive Cancer Center is one of only 51 comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). As an NCI-designated cancer center, we compete for a Cancer Center Support Grant from the National Institutes of Health. We are recognized for demonstrating a depth and breadth of research in all three areas of basic, clinical, and population science. We also provide information, education and outreach to the public.

As an NCI-designated cancer center, we develop and translate scientific knowledge from promising laboratory discoveries into new treatments for cancer patients. We serve our local community with programs and services tailored to the unique needs of our population. We disseminate evidence-based findings to our communities, and these programs and services can be translated to benefit similar populations around the country.
