The Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) consists of six (6) schools of medical practice, which include: Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Graduate Studies, Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health.
- The Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center (SSSCC) is a multidisciplinary center within the School of Medicine, whose researchers and clinicians apply a range of expertise to cancer research, education, and patient care. SSSCC’s investigators are dedicated to furthering research on the pathogenesis, prevention, treatment, and eventual eradication of cancer. Its members hold approximately $20 million in annual funding for cancer-related clinical, basic, and translational research in areas including Molecular Signaling, Population Science, Genetics and Viral Carcinogenesis, and Immunology.
- Under the direction of Dr. Augusto Ochoa, SSSCC has over 120 researchers and physicians who are working towards one common goal, to decrease the heavy burden of cancer within the local community. To achieve this goal, SSSCC has established several programs focused on clinical trials, basic and translational research, and minority health and health disparities to support our mission.
