UVA is ranked as one of the top cancer centers in the country by U.S. News & World Report.
UVA is one of only two National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Clinical Cancer Centers in Virginia. To be recognized by the NCI, a center must have a substantial portfolio of cancer research support and a scientific staff recognized for its cancer research skills in a wide array of scientific areas.
