When the formation of the University of Cincinnati Cancer Center was developed in January 2020, the world was unknowingly hurtling into a global pandemic, with around-the-world lockdowns and close to a million COVID-19-related deaths in the United States. However, it was perhaps the most critical time to assemble and organize cancer research.
“I’m very excited about our future. If you look at what we’ve done in the last years in terms of developing the University of Cincinnati Cancer Center, it’s remarkable,” said Dr. Syed Ahmad, co-director of the University of Cincinnati Cancer Center.
The University of Cincinnati Cancer Center is a collaboration between the University of Cincinnati, UC Health and Cincinnati Children’s—each bringing their own rich legacy of top-tier care. The Cancer Center’s common goal is to minimize the suffering and mortality associated with cancer in the Greater Cincinnati region and beyond. While providing the best possible care for our patients, the Cancer Center trains the next generation of cancer experts—all while being at the forefront of new advances and cutting-edge discoveries.
“This collaboration allows us to bring together top-notch researchers and clinicians from each entity to deliver top-level care for our community,” Dr. Ahmad added.
