Statement of Purpose: The University of Colorado Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center serving Colorado, and one of just 41 in the United States. The CU Cancer Center is also one of 23 elite members of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, setting the gold standard in terms of national and international guidelines for clinical practice in oncology. The CU Cancer Center’s scientists and cancer clinicians work at the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus, University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado State University, University of Colorado Health (which includes University of Colorado Hospital, Memorial Hospital, Poudre Valley Hospital, and Medical Center of the Rockies), Children’s Hospital Colorado, Denver Veteran Affairs Medical Center, Denver Health, National Jewish Health, and Kaiser Permanente. This consortium structure has made a significant impact on cancer treatment and survivorship locally, such as higher 5-year survival rates than statewide and national averages for several cancer types, including cancers of the prostate, breast and lung. Although the funds raised have significant local impact and the clinical programs benefit hundreds of Colorado residents, the scientific achievements have a national reach and move the scientific community closer and closer to finding a cure for cancer.
