About the CU Cancer Center

The University of Colorado Cancer Center (CU Cancer Center) is the Rocky Mountain West’s only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center. NCI has given only 41 cancer centers this designation, deeming membership as “the best of the best.”

CU Cancer Center’s director is Dan Theodorescu, MD, PhD.

Headquartered on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, the CU Cancer Center is a consortium of three state universities (Colorado State University, University of Colorado Boulder and University of Colorado Denver) and six health institutions (University of Colorado Health, Children’s Hospital Colorado, Denver Health, Denver VA Medical Center, National Jewish Health and Kaiser Permanente Colorado). University of Colorado Health represents the University of Colorado Hospital, Memorial Hospital, Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies.

Together, our 440+ members are working to ease the cancer burden through cancer care, research, education and prevention and control.
