May is National Cancer Research Month

May is National Cancer Research Month

In 2007, the United States Congress declared May National Cancer Research Month. This month, the University of Arizona Cancer Center is joining the American Association for Cancer Research's national campaign to raise awareness of the importance of cancer research and the progress that research institutions are making in critical areas of research and patient care.

The University of Arizona Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute-designed Comprehensive Cancer Center, one of 41 in the nation and the only one headquartered in and serving the entire state of Arizona. Our mission is simple — to prevent and cure cancer. Every day our physicians and scientists conduct leading-edge research and bring the latest advances in cancer treatment directly to our patients.

In honor of National Cancer Research Month, please take a moment to learn more about research at the University of Arizona Cancer Center and consider supporting our efforts to find a cure.

Here are a few highlights of the many research efforts under way at the University of Arizona Cancer Center:

  • Nearly 200 active clinical trials offering patients promising therapies well before they are commercially available. Learn more: Find a Clinical Trial
