""We have researchers from the medical schools from north and south, and from historically black colleges and universities working on the social determinants of disease that we know are so important in many diseases, including colon cancer."
"That’s why the Louisiana Cancer Research Center was created: because your state legislature understood that the only way we can end the devastation of this disease is by bringing researchers, and doctors, and nurses, and patients together. We see the power of that collaboration here, where LSU, Tulane, Xavier University, and Ochsner are working together under one roof and in communities throughout the state."
Each year, more than 25,000 Louisianans receive a new cancer diagnosis. Established to improve cancer outcomes and attain an NCI-designated cancer center in the state, the Louisiana Cancer Research Center (LCRC) is a collaboration hub that advances groundbreaking research, enhances prevention methods, and accelerates innovative treatments for those touched by the disease.
