Dedication Ceremony Held for Louisiana Cancer Research Center in New Orleans
Date:10/23/2013

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

The Louisiana Cancer Research Center (LCRC) held a ceremony today to officially dedicate its new 10-story, 180,000-square-foot building located at 1700 Tulane Avenue in downtown New Orleans. The state-of-the-art research facility represents Louisiana’s commitment to eradicating cancer among its citizens. The new facility, along with the research and programs provided by the Louisiana Cancer Research Consortium, is recognized by the State of Louisiana as the beginning of what will be a progressive biomedical corridor emanating from New Orleans and spreading throughout the coastal, southeast United States.

The LCRC is a collaboration of Louisiana State University (LSU) Health Sciences Center-New Orleans, Tulane University Health Sciences Center, Xavier University of Louisiana and Ochsner Health System. It offers access to technologies, services and scientific consultation that enhances scientific interaction and productivity. It is located in what is fast-becoming the city’s new biomedical corridor, an area that also includes the New Orleans BioInnovation Center, the University Medical Center at New Orleans, which is currently under construction, and the new VA Medical Center (also under construction), a teaching and research medical complex that will serve both Tulane and LSU medical schools.

Today’s ceremony, which included a ceremonial ribbon cutting and tours of the building, was attended by State Senator John A. Alario, Jr. - District 8, State Representative Walt Leger, III - District 91, Mitch Landrieu, Mayor, City of New Orleans and Jacquelyn Brechtel Clarkson, City of New Orleans Council President. In addition to local dignitaries, LCRC board members, scientific and administrative leadership, staff, university partners, area cancer research supporters and cancer survivors were all recognized for their continued support and commitment to the LCRC.
