Who We Are

Patient Care

Research

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is one of the world’s most respected centers devoted exclusively to cancer patient care, research, education and prevention.

In Fiscal Year 2011, more than 108,000 people — about one-third of them new patients — sought the high-quality care that has made MD Anderson so widely respected. There were nearly 10,000 registrants on clinical trials exploring novel treatments, the largest such program in the nation.

At MD Anderson, important scientific knowledge gained in the laboratory is rapidly translated into clinical care. The research program is considered one of the most productive in the world aimed solely at cancer.

Located in Houston on the campus of the Texas Medical Center, MD Anderson marked its 70-year anniversary in 2011. It also welcomed Ronald DePinho, M.D., as the fourth full-time president in the institution’s history. The Texas Legislature created MD Anderson in 1941 as part of The University of Texas System. It is one of the nation’s original three comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Act of 1971.

Mission The mission of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is to eliminate cancer in Texas, the nation and the world through outstanding programs that integrate patient care, research and prevention, and through education for undergraduate and graduate students, trainees, professionals, employees and the public.

Vision We shall be the premier cancer center in the world, based on the excellence of our people, our research-driven patient care and our science.

Core Values Caring: By our words and actions, we create a caring environment for everyone. Integrity: We work together to merit the trust of our colleagues and those we serve. Discovery: We embrace creativity and seek new knowledge.
