Today, 4 in 10 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Facing cancer oneself, or supporting a loved one with cancer, is a life-altering experience that underscores just how precious life is.
The University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center is committed to bettering the health and well-being of people who have -- or are at risk of getting -- cancer:
- Through research in prevention and early detection
- By developing new and better treatments
- By training the next generation of cancer researchers, physicians and health care providers
Our patient care is multidisciplinary, which means treatment plans are developed with input from many experts: pathologists, radiologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists. These team members share their experiences and knowledge of specific cancer to provide the very best options. Due to our extensive research programs, the majority of our patients have access to new forms of treatment, many developed here as a result of clinical trials.
