Mission Statement

The mission of the VCU Massey Cancer Center is to serve the Commonwealth of Virginia and the nation as an internationally recognized institute of clinical, educational and research excellence dedicated to improving the quality of human life through the prevention, control and cure of cancer.

Description

Welcome to VCU Massey Cancer Center. We are proud to be one of just 63 cancer centers out of 1,500 nationwide designated by the National Cancer Institute to help lead and shape our nation's fight against cancer.

As an NCI-designated center, much of the latest cancer research is developed and available right here. Our 500 researchers -- 175 of whom are VCU faculty members -- endeavor to bring their discoveries from the laboratories to the bedside as quickly and safely as possible. We collaborate with other leading cancer centers across the country to ensure that the treatments people in Central Virginia need are right here, close to home.

Massey offers more clinical trials than any other cancer center in Virginia, which in turn enables us to offer more hope and new treatment options to people with all kinds of cancer.

Our specialized teams focus their intellectual power on each patient. These multidisciplinary teams are organized by unique types of cancer -- such as breast cancer, lung cancer or colon cancer -- and they include a variety of specialists. Surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and a host of others meet each week to discuss treatment plans for each patient. This level of teamwork and communication is unparalleled, and it saves patients and their families from visiting a variety of specialists in different locations around town.

Massey is also one of the best models of a public-private partnership in Virginia, with more than 50 percent of our funding coming from private philanthropy. We appreciate the support our community gives us and, in turn, we commit ourselves to helping to prevent, control and, ultimately, to cure cancer.
