In the 1960's a group of scientists and volunteers from UCLA joined forces with a single goal: to develop a state-of-the-art cancer center that would lead the way in education, research, and patient care. In 1976, the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center became Southern California's first comprehensive cancer center, the highest possible designation from the National Cancer Institute and held by only 51 centers across the nation. Today, the Cancer Center has been widely recognized for its rigorous, transdisciplinary research and high-quality patient care. Employing over 500 scientists and physicians, the Cancer Center sees more than 20,000 patients each year, is currently conducting 400 active clinical trials, and performs over 5,000 bone marrow and stem cell transplants annually. Beyond advancing the study and treatment of cancer, the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center's education and training programs are shaping the next generation of changemakers in these fields.
