NCI-designated Cancer Center

                   

NCI-designated Cancer Centers are a group of approximately 64 cancer research institutions in the United States supported by the National Cancer Institute.

Two designations are recognized: Comprehensive Cancer Centers and Cancer Centers. As of 2012, there are 41 Comprehensive Cancer Centers and 23 designated Cancer Centers. Receiving the NCI-designation places cancer centers among the top 4 percent of the approximately 1500 cancer centers in the United States.

The standards for Comprehensive Cancer Centers are the more restrictive of the two types. These facilities must demonstrate expertise in each of three areas: laboratory, clinical, and behavioral and population-based research. Comprehensive Cancer Centers are expected to initiate and conduct early phase, innovative clinical trials and to participate in the NCI's cooperative groups by providing leadership and recruiting patients for trials. Comprehensive Cancer Centers must also conduct activities in outreach and education, and provide information on advances in healthcare for both healthcare professionals and the public.

Cancer Centers generally conduct a combination of basic, population sciences, and clinical research, and are encouraged to stimulate collaborative research involving more than one field of study. Several of these centers conduct only laboratory research and do not provide patient care.

  Cancer Centers in Germany

The US-system of NCI-designated Cancer Centers is successfully adopted by the German Cancer Aid in Europe, founded by the late German First Lady Mildred Scheel. The daughter of an US-American mother supported from the very beginning the German-American cooperation in fighting cancer. The Federal Minister of Health (Germany), Philipp Rösler (FDP), opened on 2nd November 2010 in Heidelberg the largest German NCI (Nationales Centrum Tumorerkrankungen). The cost of the new building of 29 million euro are financed with private donation from the people to the German Cancer Aid. This organization is financing more than ten such Cancer Centers.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
