Long known as a major center for basic cancer research, UCSF is working to enhance clinical research by arranging to provide access to both clinical care and trials under one roof. Construction of a new building to house the clinical cancer programs of UCSF Mount Zion Medical Center, part of UCSF Stanford Health Care, is scheduled to break ground this year. In addition, UCSF opened its new cancer research building in 1997 and is continuing to recruit nationally recognized researchers to the facility.
The UCSF Cancer Center's research and clinical programs are being established with a focus on integrating all aspects of research and treatment around specific cancers. The Breast Oncology Program at UCSF, supported by several major grants, is serving as a model for the continuing development of these programs.
