Sacramento Business Journal

The UC Davis Cancer Center has joined an elite group of 40 comprehensive cancer centers in the nation recognized for the breadth-and-depth of their patient care, research and outreach into the community, university officials announced Wednesday. UC Davis received National Cancer Institute designation in 2002, recognition of the center’s state-of-the art care and potential to make major scientific contributions to the war against cancer. A total of 66 cancer centers — out of a national total of about 6,000 — have the NCI designation.
