Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center

In 2001, 2 years after the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center was established, it was named an NCI-Designated Cancer Center and was further designated a Comprehensive Cancer Center in 2005.

Siteman Cancer Center is an international leader in moving laboratory research into the clinic, including new methods and interventions to better diagnose, treat, and prevent cancer.

The center includes the cancer research, prevention, and treatment programs of Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Siteman treats nearly 10,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients each year, making it one of the largest cancer centers in the United States.
