Intellect and discovery characterize growth at Penn State Cancer Institute. Our free-standing facility provides researchers and clinicians with a collaborative space that allows for comprehensive cancer care and creates a community of individuals devoted to finding a cure for cancer.
Representing nine Penn State University colleges and 36 departments, the Cancer Institute serves as a hub for nearly 160 clinicians, researchers and faculty members based in Hershey and University Park, State College in Centre County. As a comprehensive center, the team sees nearly 2,000 individual cases annually.
Our state-of-the-art interdisciplinary patient care involves a team of medical, surgical and radiation oncologists working together to determine the best therapeutic course for each patient. We focus our attention on becoming designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Among other strengths, the Cancer Institute's emphasis on rural, underserved populations is a focus of the CCSG application. Many of these efforts are conducted through the Appalachian Cancer Network by volunteers throughout Pennsylvania who provide education, screening services and behavioral interventions to reduce cancer risk.
