VCU Massey Cancer Center is established in 1974 which is located at Richmond, Virginia, USA funded by an NCI Cancer Center Support Grant since 1975 because of its scientific excellence in cancer research and its vital role in reducing cancer morbidity and mortality. Massey Cancer Center is one of the nations top research universities, and VCU Medical Center, a leading academic health system ranked Virginias top hospital by U.S. News & World Report in 2012. More than 160 full, associate, and affiliate members from 28 academic departments, five schools and one college, come together at VCU Massey Cancer Center to conduct basic, translational, clinical and population sciences research to discover better ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer. They collaborate on research in five key scientific programs: Cancer Cell Signaling, Cancer Molecular Genetics, Cancer Prevention and Control, Developmental Therapeutics, and Radiation Biology and Oncology. The Cancer Cell Signaling program examines key signaling pathways that contribute to cancer. The Cancer Molecular Genetics program investigates genetic and epigenetic changes that underlie the molecular and cellular events contributing to cancer development and progression, and uses this information to construct new target-based therapies for cancer. The Cancer Prevention and Control program develops basic and applied research initiatives in behavioral, social, and population sciences to create or enhance interventions that reduce cancer risk, incidence, morbidity and mortality, and enhance quality of life.
