About Us


In the late 1960s, a group of scientists and volunteers at UCLA came together to develop a cancer center they hoped would become renowned for excellence in research, education and patient care. Today, the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center has established an international reputation for providing the best in experimental and traditional cancer treatments and expertly guiding the next generation of medical research.
