The West Virginia University Cancer Institute is West Virginia’s premier cancer facility with a national reputation of excellence in cancer treatment, prevention and research.
Located in Morgantown, within the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center at West Virginia University School of Medicine, we are recognized by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, for providing the best in cancer care. Our teams of cancer specialists, work closely with each patient to develop the best possible tailored treatment plans.

Our clinics are owned and operated by WVU Medicine (which was recently ranked the #1 Hospital in WV, by U.S. News and World Report.) The Cancer Center Clinics encompasses the Betty Puskar Breast Care Center, an American College of Radiology (ACR) designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence; the Comprehensive Breast Care Program, accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC); Bonnie's Bus -The Bonnie Wells Wilson Mobile Mammography Program, that delivers the most advanced digital mammography to communities in West Virginia, as well as Radiation Oncology and Surgical Oncology and the Osborn Hematopoietic Malignancy and Transplantation Program, West Virginia's only source for blood and marrow transplants.
The Scientific Programs within the MBRCC are organized to nurture interactions between basic, clinical and population scientists and are designed to impact on specific health disparities and populations with unique needs within our state. MBRCC Programs include Molecular Mechanisms of EMT and Metastasis, Breast Cancer, Osborn Hematopoietic Malignancy and Transplantation, and Allen Lung Cancer. Members in these Programs include over 100 faculty from eight schools and 33 department across campus. This interdisciplinary environment helps further cancer research by understanding the biological mechanisms and progression of cancer, translating these discoveries into therapeutic targets to treat and prevent the diseases, and engaging high risk and underserved communities to reduce the burden of cancer among West Virginians.
