About the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center

The UNM Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute (NCI) - designated cancer center in the state of New Mexico. We are one of only 50 cancer centers in the nation to be designated by the NCI as a comprehensive cancer center, the highest federal designation and rating for cancer centers.  The UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center is recognized.  Annual federal and private funding of over $72 million supports the UNM Cancer Center’s research programs. The UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center treats more than 60 percent of the adults and virtually all of the children in New Mexico affected by cancer, from every county in the state. It is home to New Mexico’s largest team of board-certified oncology physicians and research scientists.  Our 130 scientists from places like Harvard, MIT and Memorial Sloan-Kettering, are supported by almost $60 million in federal, state and private funding, and are recognized throughout the nation for their breakthrough research in genomics, leukemia, nanotechnology, radioisotopes and drug discovery.  We partner with Sandia National Laboratories, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute and New Mexico State University to find cures for cancer.
