The University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center announced Friday that the National Cancer Institute (NCI) renewed its national cancer center designation for the next five years. The UK Markey Cancer Center remains one of only 70 NCI-designated centers in the country and the only one in Kentucky.
“UK was founded for the people of Kentucky, and still today, they turn to us. Five years ago, we stood together and declared cancer in Kentucky had a new foe. That is a promise we intend to keep, and we are proud to announce further investment in that promise with the renewal of the Markey Cancer Center’s NCI-designation,” said UK President Eli Capilouto. “The renewal of this transformative designation will enable us to further deliver on our promise to those we serve and heal – to be a champion against the disease that for too long has robbed Kentuckians of happiness and health.”
