About Us

The UCI Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (CFCCC) is the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center in Orange County, California.

Our vision is to prevent, manage and cure cancer so that all people live healthier, longer lives.

The Center’s overall Mission parallels that of our parent institutions, the University of California, Irvine and its health system, UCI Health: to DISCOVER, TEACH, and HEAL within the broad discipline of cancer medicine.

  • Discover
    To facilitate and promote interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary cancer research across UCI. To develop new knowledge about the causes, prevention, detection, treatment, and survival of cancer that shift scientific paradigms, change public policy and clinical practice, and eliminate cancer health disparities. 
  • Teach
    To disseminate state-of-the-art cancer knowledge to cancer caregivers, patients and families, and the public. To train the next diverse generation of cancer researchers and care providers.
  • Heal
    To deliver the highest quality multidisciplinary clinical care to cancer patients. To develop and sustain programs to alleviate the burden of cancer within our diverse community.
