Kentucky has one of the highest cancer rates in the United States. Despite the overwhelming need for advanced cancer care, Kentucky was one of only 16 states without a National Cancer Institute-designated center. Until now. In July 2013, the Markey Cancer Center at the University of Kentucky joined an elite group of 67 centers across the country with NCI designation. This means the Markey Cancer Center will see up to $1.5 million annually in additional funding, and Kentucky patients will be able to participate in clinical trials for the most promising new cancer treatments.
