a number of high-priority cancer research efforts focused
on converting laboratory discoveries into more effective
therapies for cancer patients. For the 8th consecutive

(JCCC) is rated as the best cancer center in California
and among the nation’s top 10 by U.S. News & World
Report. The JCCC’s dedicated researchers are clearly

new and better ways to prevent, detect, and treat cancer.
