A productive year for the LCRC
The Louisiana Cancer Research Center is much different today than it was a year ago. LCRC Director/CEO Joe W. Ramos, PhD, hit the ground running last August and has not wavered in his commitment to transform the LCRC into Louisiana's Cancer Research Center. He has realigned research programs, established new initiatives, expanded our statewide presence and is working to align and support the research resources necessary to reduce the burden of cancer in Louisiana.
Expanded statewide presence by extending membership to faculty at additional Louisiana research institutions
Established LCRC Office of Community Outreach and Engagement
Secured new $15 million investment from the State of Louisiana
Raised LCRC national and local awareness with the visit of First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, Senator Cassidy, Congressman Carter, and Mayor Cantrell
Established new trans-institutional research programs and held a full faculty retreat
Established the first summer student program with the new LCRC education component
Happy Anniversary, Dr. Ramos!
