The Cancer Center's Economic Impact

Did you know that for every dollar the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center receives, we can leverage that for as much as $14 from external funding sources, including federal agencies such as the National Cancer Institute or the National Institutes of Health.

Turning $1 into $14 makes a definite economic impact, not just at UAB, but across Birmingham. Learn more by watching this short video, and then visit our website to find out how you can get involved in helping us achieve our vision of eliminating cancer as a major public health problem!

What if Birmingham was known as the city that cured cancer?
