Louisiana Cancer Research Center

The new Louisiana Cancer Research Center is the first, major post-Katrina construction in the city’s growing biosciences district. It serves as the physical embodiment of the Consortium’s work and will help the Greater New Orleans area continue to establish itself as a hub for state-of-the-art medical research, quality healthcare, and as a teaching epicenter for the next generation of Louisiana doctors and researchers.

Through the work of its member institutions – LSU Health Sciences Center, Tulane University, Xavier University of Louisiana and Ochsner Health System – the LCRC has developed a collaborative cancer alliance whose mission is to develop a coordinated cancer research and education program that optimizes discovery and development of innovative cancer therapies; lead to innovative clinical treatment programs offering new opportunities for early detection, treatment, and prevention of cancer in our region; and promote regional economic growth. LCRC researchers attract over $30 million in federal cancer research grant funding per year to the region, despite decreased federal research budgets and sharply increased competition.
