The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC) was designated as a comprehensive cancer center in 1976 by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). We are one of only 40 Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the United States.
The OSUCCC has a multidisciplinary team approach to cancer research, patient care, prevention and community outreach. We are an umbrella entity that unifies Ohio State scientists and researchers from 14 colleges at OSU who have a research focus on cancer and translate basic, clinical and prevention research into quality cancer care.
The mission of the Center for Clinical and Translational Science Center is "to improve the quality of care for all patients in the community by developing a transformative clinical and translational science discipline that is at the core of the OSU academic culture."
The goal of the CTSA is to speed the translation of new scientific discoveries to enhance patient outcomes.
