The Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) Cancer Care & Research Community (CCRC) is made up of special people — students, scientists, clinicians, volunteers, and donors — dedicated to giving their energy, talents and unique skills to provide the best care for our patients and to discover new ways to combat this deadly disease. Our mission is to conduct laboratory, clinical, community-based participatory, and epidemiological cancer research and to better understand and reduce cancer health disparities. Our team does this by working to increase the number of highly competent cancer researchers and clinicians at our facilities, promote cancer screenings and healthy lifestyles, and expand minority participation in clinical oncology trials. CCRC has more than 50 affiliated members engaged in Cancer Immuno-biology, Drug Discovery, Clinical, Implementation Science, and Cancer Health Disparities Research.
