Hampton University Cancer Research Center

As one of only a few cancer centers located at a Historically Black University, the Hampton University Cancer Research Center is dedicated to the creation of knowledge in laboratory, clinical and community-based cancer research. We apply those discoveries to develop more effective approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis and therapies – providing tomorrow's standard of care today.
