The UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the N.C. Cancer Hospital are creating the new face of cancer research and treatment in North Carolina.
UNC Lineberger is the only public comprehensive cancer center for the State and the people of North Carolina. Our mission is to reduce cancer occurrence and death in North Carolina and across the nation through research, treatment, training and outreach. The N.C. Cancer Hospital – part of UNC Health Care – is the cancer center’s clinical home.
UNC Lineberger faculty treat cancer patients, conduct research into the causes of cancer and search for new treatments, develop and direct statewide programs in cancer prevention, and train future physicians, nurses, scientists and public health professionals.
