It may start with research but it’s really about … a child with leukemia, a single mother of three with breast cancer, a father with lung cancer, a grandmother with ovarian cancer, or a sister, brother or friend. Our research isn’t about what we think we want it to be. It’s about what they need us to be. It’s about the cooperation among four of Louisiana’s most respected research, education and healthcare delivery institutions. The Louisiana Cancer Research Center (LCRC) brings together LSUHSC, Tulane, Xavier and Ochsner, enabling them to work together as partners, forming a cohesive force dedicated to the eradication of cancer. LCRC is about bringing quality research and educational outreach to the culturally diverse people of Louisiana, serving the needs of a population who experience some of the highest cancer mortality rates in the country.

For LCRC, it’s not all about the research, it’s all about life. What we do is cutting-edge science. Why we do it is the real reason we come to work each day. It may start with test tubes and Petri dishes. But it ends with something far more important. It ends with nothing less than the smile on the face of a cancer survivor. Another birthday celebrated. Another anniversary remembered…

Your support helps to make a difference. LCRC’s unique initiatives make a valuable contribution toward developing a coordinated cancer research and education program in Louisiana. Your generosity helps us to support our research teams and provide resources for their efforts to identify and produce new or enhanced diagnostic and therapeutic treatments and opportunities to prevent, detect or treat cancer. By partnering with you, and other generous people like you, LCRC will continue to make strides against cancer in Louisiana and in our country.
