Patients who come to UCLA benefit from the most advanced forms of cancer care available. They also have access to a full range of supportive services.
Teams of specialists work together to treat and assist cancer patients and their families. This multidisciplinary approach helps patients and family members confront both the immediate and long-term effects of cancer.
The Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation (JCCF) was founded in 1945 by a group of volunteers dedicated to cancer research at UCLA. Their idea, using funds raised from private sources to invest in the work of promising young cancer researchers, resulted in the Seed Grant Program, which has helped the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC) break new ground in the quest to defeat cancer.
Although seed grants remain an important part of JCCF's mission, the Foundation today also supports numerous high-priority, multi-disciplinary cancer research efforts focused on rapidly translating discoveries made in the laboratory into improved screening, treatment and prevention.
