UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center
About Our Work
UNC Lineberger has an unmatched devotion to better outcomes for all cancer patients. We work to improve our scientific and medical strengths—and ultimately touch more lives. Fighting cancer is an endeavor shared by all whose lives have been affected by this disease, and our abilities are amplified when people join this battle. Together, we can harness our resources to create new avenues of scientific study, develop novel treatments and ultimately revolutionize the fight against cancer.

INVEST IN PEOPLE TO FIND CURES
Our battle against cancer is only as effective as the people we enable to fight—our exceptional team of scientists and care providers are driven by a desire to do remarkable things for the good of others. We must continue to cultivate these leaders across research, education, prevention and patient care. Our best and brightest faculty are coveted by other leading cancer centers. As a result, we must both enhance strategic efforts to retain top faculty, and to recruit the next generation of life-saving scientists and clinicians.
VENTURE TO SEEK SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS
Breakthroughs come from unexpected places. We must be unafraid to take research down bold paths that lead to transformational treatments. With your help we will continue to reimagine the future of patient treatment and care, investing in bold research ventures that can alter the course and future of cancer research and treatment, and help uncover cures. We have identified and built up efforts in cellular immunotherapy, cancer genetics, academic drug discovery and big data. These are our “big bets”—research areas that can affect multiple disease types, and in which we also have a competitive advantage across the national landscape.
TRANSLATE RESEARCH INTO RESULTS
Because of our many interdisciplinary strengths, we have the unique ability to move from breakthroughs in labs to novel treatments in clinical trials much more rapidly than other institutions. Strengthening these capabilities will lead to novel therapies, and ensure that our patients have access to more personalized, more advanced and more compassionate treatments. We will also continue to provide compassionate holistic care and address the needs of all patients and families throughout their entire cancer journey.
UNITE ACROSS POPULATION SCIENCES TO BEAT CANCER
Cancer treatment and prevention goes beyond the research lab. As a global leader in population sciences, we must continue to use our understanding of social, behavioral, genetic, epidemiological and surveillance research to champion practices and policies that improve cancer prevention.
