The UVA Comprehensive Cancer Center (UVACCC) is one of just 53 in the nation to hold that designation by the National Cancer Institute, and the only one in Virginia. Our more than 175 researchers pursue discovery in support of cancer prevention, detection and treatment. UVACCC’s work directly supports patients seen by UVA Health clinicians and individuals who live in the UVACCC catchment area through outreach partnerships. UVACCC offers robust education and career development activities to participants ranging from elementary school students to junior faculty to train the next generation of cancer researchers and clinicians. UVACCC strives to support diversity, equity and inclusion in all of its communities and activities.
