2016 UK Markey Cancer Center Annual Report

In a state like Kentucky and a region like Central Appalachia – where cancer is at its worst – it takes bold action to make a difference.

At the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center, being bold is at the heart of everything we do. We’re harnessing the power of advanced medicine to explore the latest in cancer research and treatment, recruit the brightest minds from across the country, and extend our expertise across the state and region – all to lessen the toll cancer takes on patients and their families.
