C3_full_logo.gif

The mission of C3 is to leverage the collaborative opportunities offered by the existence of one of the only 46 NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers (UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center) and two of the only 7 NCI-designated basic research cancer centers (Salk Institute for Biological Studies and Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute) in the same city;

Consistent with this mission, C3's primary function is to provide an ongoing forum for advancing  cancer prevention and control, screening and therapy vis enhancing the interactions and collaborations among the three NCI-designated Cancer Centers in San Diego, as well as promoting interactions with other public and private sector organizations in San Diego.
