The Cancer Center and Research Institute unites physicians, nurses and researchers from the University of Mississippi Medical Center and the University of Mississippi in the quest to stop cancer through:
- Interdisciplinary world class cancer prevention, detection and treatment.
- Research to better prevent, detect and treat cancer.
- Education for Mississippi residents and the medical caregivers who one day will provide their cancer care.
Adult and pediatric physicians see more than 2,000 new patients annually and follow more than 5,800 survivors. Cancer teams see many people with rare or complex care needs.
