The OSUCCC – James is one of only 41 comprehensive cancer centers in the nation as designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), a designation that we have maintained through competitive renewal since 1976. After the site review for our most recent renewal, we earned the NCI's highest ranking, "exceptional”. The NCI survey team stated that the OSUCCC – James "should serve as the model for other matrix university-based centers."
The OSUCCC – James has 21 Shared Resources that provide specialized services to cancer researchers. They offer cost-effective, state-of-the-art technology and instrumentation; expert guidance and training; and clinical, administrative and technical support.
