The University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center is the Official Cancer Center of New Mexico and the only National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated comprehensive cancer center in a 500-mile radius.

Our staff focus on discovering the causes and cures for cancers disproportionately affecting the people of the American Southwest — primarily Hispanic, American Indian, and Non-Hispanic White — with strikingly different patterns of cancer incidence, mortality and disparity. In the past year, our center cared for almost 12,000 patients; 12 percent participated in therapeutic interventional studies and 35 percent in interventional studies. The UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center is the center of our statewide cancer clinical trials and health delivery research network — partly funded by a NCI NCORP Grant — and is an Oncology Research Information Exchange Network ( member. Our center has conducted 60+ statewide community-based cancer education, prevention, screening, and behavioral intervention studies involving more than 10,000 New Mexicans.
