The Rogel Cancer Center seeks to reduce cancer burden and improve cancer outcomes through research, innovation and transdisciplinary collaboration.
The highly ranked Center, which was awarded the “comprehensive” status in 1991 by the National Cancer Institute, has more than $116 million per year in research funding. More than 500 U-M faculty members provide care to patients, while many also work on laboratory, clinical, prevention or outcomes research.
The nine-story building includes:
- 125,000 square feet of clinical space, which houses many of the Center’s outpatient clinics as well as infusion space
- Phase I unit that offers first-in-human trials with an adjacent translational research laboratory
- 90,000 square feet of research space
- 5,000 square feet for an animal facility
The Rogel Cancer Center has over 70,000 square feet of space in the North Campus Research Complex, which houses shared core facilities, basic science, translational, and behavioral sciences researchers and laboratories, and the Oncology Clinical Trials Support Unit.
Rogel Cancer Center physicians and staff also provide clinic visits, infusion, radiation oncology and clinical trial opportunities to patients throughout Michigan at many of Michigan Medicine's ambulatory centers, as well as partner locations.
