UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center is Tackling Cancer

UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center was established in 1975 with Joseph S. Pagano, Professor of Medicine and Microbiology at the University Of North Carolina School Of Medicine, as its founding Director. It was named after the Lineberger family of Belmont, North Carolina whose Lineberger Foundation provided the core funding for the Center’s first dedicated research building, which was completed in 1984. The Center’s clinical base, North Carolina Cancer Hospital, was completed in 2009. In the summer of 2007, the North Carolina General Assembly established the University Cancer Research Fund (UCRF) to support cancer research at UNC Lineberger and the North Carolina Cancer Hospital with annual funding of $50 million
