The Tisch Cancer Institute Earns Second Consecutive Designation From National Cancer Institute

Ramon Parsons, MD, PhD

The Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai (TCI) has been awarded $13 million as part of the renewal of its National Cancer Institute Cancer Center Designation, a prestigious distinction that is based on scientific excellence, robust clinical research, and beneficial community impact. The National Cancer Institute rated TCI’s application as “outstanding.”

The five-year redesignation award—the Institute’s second consecutive designation—will support research programs and facilities, promote collaborative translational cancer research in a coordinated manner, and help disseminate cancer research findings to the community. The funding complements $53 million in current cancer research grants earned by TCI investigators.
