Greenebaum Cancer Center recertified

The University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center has won renewal of its National Cancer Institute designation for five years, along with $7.6 million in new federal funding for cancer research.

The Greenebaum Cancer Center was first named an NCI-designated center in 2008. The NCI renewed the designation following an exhaustive review process, which included a 1,100-page grant proposal and site visit earlier this year by a team of two dozen NCI-appointed scientists.

The cancer center is part of the University of Maryland Medical Center, and is one of 66 NCI-designated cancer centers throughout the United States.
