Ten Shared Resources are available to Cancer Center members, and the Human Genome Sequencing Center, the Center for Drug Discovery, and the Therapeutic Innovation Center focusing on drug development are additional unique resources.  The Center is the recipient of a $100M naming gift from the Duncan family.  A new ambulatory care building primarily for cancer and new inpatient hospital are under construction.
