comprehensive cancer center (KOM-pree-HEN-siv KAN-ser …)

A cancer research center that gets support from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to do
cancer research and provide services directly to cancer patients. Scientists and doctors at these
centers do basic laboratory research and clinical trials, and they study the patterns, causes, and
control of cancer in groups of people. Also, they take part in multicenter clinical trials, which
enroll patients from many parts of the country. Comprehensive Cancer Centers also give cancer
information to health care professionals and the public. More information about the NCI Cancer
Centers Program can be found on the NCI’s Web site at https://cancercenters.cancer.gov/.
