Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center

About Us

The Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center at Baylor College of Medicine is a collaboration of physicians and scientists and a consortium made up of Baylor College of Medicine, Ben Taub Hospital, Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Texas Children's Hospital.

The Duncan Cancer Center at BCM brings together all of the cancer-related activities from across these institutions under one umbrella, fast-tracking our efforts to prevent and ultimately cure cancer in all its forms for adults, children, the underserved and U.S. veterans.

A National Cancer Institute designated cancer center, we offer the best minds in cancer treatment backed by the renowned researchers of Baylor College of Medicine, improved outcomes through comprehensive, personalized care, and access to the latest clinical trials. We are at the forefront of personalized medicine, replacing traditional treatments with targeted therapies based on each individual's unique biology and the exact characteristics of their cancer. The benefits: earlier detection, better prevention, and more effective treatments with fewer side effects.

Through prestigious research grants awarded by the NCI, the Duncan Cancer Center continues to make significant and far-reaching contributions to cancer research and patient care.
