Albuquerque, New Mexico

The University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center (UNM CCC) assures that all New Mexicans have access to world class cancer care and benefit from advances in clinical, transitional and basic cancer research. Our multidisciplinary teams of 116 physicians in every cancer specialty — New Mexico’s largest cancer team — work with our nurses, pharmacists and other cancer professionals to develop a specialized treatment plan for each of our 10,000 patients every year. We provide access to more than 160 cancer clinical trials through the New Mexico Cancer Care Alliance, an “exemplary national model for cancer health care delivery.” In collaboration with our scientific partners (Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories, Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute), our 132 scientists are supported by more than $72 million annually in research funds to develop innovative interventions that include education, prevention, novel therapies and precision medicine.
