Information on USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center
The USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Southern California was founded in 1971 and has been continuously supported by a Cancer Center Core Support Grant since 1973. It has developed into a major regional and national resource for cancer research, treatment, prevention and education. Center facilities have been built and developed with support from the NCI, the University and the Kenneth Norris Jr. Cancer Hospital, which is an integral part of the Cancer Center. The Center underwent a major expansion with the addition of the Norman Topping Tower in 1996 and the Harlyne Norris Research Tower in 2007.
The Center’s members are organized into five thematic and five translational research programs, including a “bridge” program in developmental therapeutics. The thematic programs are headed by senior investigators in the fields of molecular genetics, epigenetics and regulation, tumor microenvironment, cancer epidemiology and cancer control research. The translational programs, which provide focus to our multidisciplinary research efforts, are in developmental therapeutics, genitourinary cancers, gastrointestinal cancers, women’s cancers and leukemia and lymphoma.
