Medical University of South Carolina Hollings Cancer Center Receives National Cancer Institute Designation
Date:3/2/2009

l University of South Carolina. One can see that the cancer building is a winner, but now all in the state can know that the doctors and staff of MUSC Cancer Center are winners. Dr. Greenberg, Dr. Kraft, and the staff are to be congratulated."

NCI-designated cancer centers are characterized by scientific excellence and the capability to integrate diverse research approaches that focus on cancer. They play a vital role in advancing the goal of reducing morbidity and mortality from cancer through increased clinical trials that offer patients new drugs and treatment protocols that would be unavailable to them otherwise.

U.S. Senator Lindsey L. Graham called the designation a "game-changer" for the thousands of South Carolinians with cancer.

"Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the nation and practically every family in our state has been impacted by this horrible disease. The Hollings Cancer Center will now take its place among an elite group of institutions in the major leagues of cancer research," Graham said. "The NCI designation only comes to the best and brightest. It is a compliment to the men and women who put in countless hours at this facility and recognition that the Hollings Cancer Center is among the best of the best in cancer research."

Designation also holds the potential to spur South Carolina's economy by attracting public and private funding for new endeavors.

Raymond S. Greenberg, MD, PhD, MUSC President, praised the efforts of many that made designation possible.

"Under the leadership of former MUSC President Jim Edwards, and with the support of Senator Hollings, MUSC set the goal of obtaining NCI designation more than a decade ago," Dr. Greenberg said. "Now that this dream has come true, we gratefully acknowledge all who have made it possible, especially Dr. Kraft and his outstanding team. We also thank those like Jim Edwards
