O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB

The O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB is one of the original seven National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers. The O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center is nearing its 50th year of continuous funding from the NCI and remains one of the premier NCI-designated cancer centers in the United States and the only such center located in the Deep South.

The O’Neal Cancer Center’s cutting-edge science continues to place it among the nation’s leading cancer research centers, particularly in the fields of cancer cell biology, cancer prevention and control, immunotherapy and immunology, and experimental therapeutics. At the community level, the Cancer Center continues its major commitment to medically underserved populations through its NCI-funded programs to improve nutrition and physical activity, increase cancer screening and lead interventions for cancer survivors.

Led by Director Barry Sleckman, MD, PhD, the O’Neal Cancer Center is home to an outstanding faculty of more than 400 physicians and researchers, many of whom are internationally and nationally recognized for their expertise in oncology. Because CPCTP trainees will be mentored by senior faculty who are members of the Cancer Center, they will also have access to all shared facilities. Those most commonly used by our previous trainees are listed below:
