As a public comprehensive cancer center serving the state and people of North Carolina, UNC Lineberger is committed to creating a world where cancer patients are always cancer survivors.
Building upon a rich tradition of translating discoveries into better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center has catapulted into the top ranks of the nation's cancer centers during the last decade. We work hard to discover how cancer works and how to stop it—because we know research is the only way to make cancer treatment better. UNC Lineberger is the largest research entity at the University of North Carolina, with more than 335 scientists from 25 different departments across campus. International leaders in their fields, these talented and compassionate faculty members harness the power of a world class university and an exceptional cancer center to move knowledge from the laboratory bench to the patient bedside to communities throughout our state. The pace of our progress has been, and always will be, dependent on private support from our generous donors.
