ncis, LCRC Board Member and President, Xavier University of Louisiana.”

The new facility was designed as a physical work-space for the Consortium’s work as it seeks National Cancer Institute (NCI) designation as a comprehensive cancer center. The collaborative cancer research and education programs within help optimize discovery and development of innovative cancer therapies, leading to innovative clinical treatment programs.

“The LCRC has always been an ambitious enterprise, bringing together the best and the brightest cancer researchers for the benefit of the citizens of Louisiana,” said William Pinsky, MD, LCRC Board Member and Executive Vice-President and Chief Academic Officer for Ochsner Health System. “Our goal is to provide the infrastructure to support the clinical research programs of all LCRC partners.”

Groundbreaking on the new Louisiana Cancer Research Center building took place in 2009, with researchers and staff moving into the building earlier this year. Four floors of the building are dedicated to cancer research laboratories for its partners’ research programs. One floor houses a vivarium and LCRC’s administrative offices, with four floors (80,000 square feet) dedicated to parking. A final floor is reserved for clinical research and support services. The building design includes a two-story glass element, which includes a spacious lobby and conference center capable of seating 250 people for scientific meetings, as well as community events.

“Louisiana, and specifically New Orleans, is gaining momentum in the area of biosciences,” added Hollier. “With the official opening today of the Louisiana Cancer Research Center and the addition of the new hospitals opening soon, we know that New Orleans can and will become a destination for distinguished researchers and cancer patients from around the region and the world.”
