KU Cancer Center wins national designation

Years of work and millions of dollars have paid off for the University of Kansas Cancer Center. The University of Kansas Cancer Center now is the 67th cancer center designated by the National Cancer Institute, joining such established names in cancer research and treatment as M.D. Anderson and Memorial Sloan-Kettering. The designation — announced at a news conference this afternoon by U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius — comes with a grant of almost $7 million over the next five years.
