“The mission of the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center is to make cancer a disease of the past by advancing and integrating research, education, and personalized patient care”.

The USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, located in Los Angeles, is a major regional and national resource for cancer research, treatment, prevention, and education.

More than 200 basic and population scientists, physicians from the faculty of the Keck School of Medicine of USC, and several USC professional schools/departments and the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences who are members of the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center investigate the complex origins and progression of cancer, develop prevention strategies, and search for cures.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has designated the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center as one of the nation's 41 comprehensive cancer centers, a select group of institutions providing leadership in cancer treatment, research, prevention, and education. USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center has held this designation since 1973, when it was named as one of the first eight comprehensive cancer centers.
