The National Cancer Institute has renewed UPCI's status as a "Comprehensive Cancer Center," which is the highest distinction it grants. With this designation comes national and international recognition as a center of excellence in basic and clinical research, prevention and control and population sciences, as well as a vital part of the regional community for cancer education and outreach.
