CINCINNATI — Ohio has two nationally recognized cancer-research centers. If medical leaders in Cincinnati have their way, there will be one more.
The University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, across the street from each other, are working together to gain designation as a comprehensive cancer center by the National Cancer Institute.
The label is prestigious: There are 42 comprehensive cancer centers nationwide. Along with prestige comes long-term support from the institute and grant money that often attracts additional research dollars.
