Cancer Center

As a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we're leaders in cancer treatments and research. Only 52 cancer programs in the U.S. have received this recognition, and we're the only one located in Virginia. As part of this renowned group of cancer care leaders, we stay ahead of the curve in cancer research, prevention, detection, and treatment. Discover our cancer research programs.

At UVA Cancer Center, you'll find the latest in research-based treatment options. To make sure everyone can access these services, we have state-of-the-art clinics throughout Virginia and telemedicine programs that reach rural communities.

U.S. News & World Report has ranked our cancer services in the top 10% of the country. Our lung cancer surgery and colon cancer surgery procedures are also ranked as “high performing.” We're also the only cancer center in Virginia listed in Becker’s 100 hospitals and health systems with great oncology programs. 

Outreach to the Community

Community collaborations address health disparities and barriers to care through patient advisory groups and public programs. Our population health projects target high rates of lung, cervical, and colon cancer in Appalachia.

Teaching the Next Generation 

The UVA School of Medicine offers fellowships in blood cancers, immunology, and more. Graduates leave UVA with a respect for both fundamental and clinical research. They know how lab work translates into patient care and prevention.
