Facilities like none other...
The GRU Cancer Center has three expressions, one laboratory-based, one clinic-based
and one education-based. Each of the GRU Cancer Center facilities are designed with
a purpose. Using a modern, scientific approach known as evidence-based design along
with the expert advice of cancer patient advisors, our treatment facilities bring
in nature and sunlight and puts patients in charge in as many ways possible. Our research
facilities celebrate innovation, combining form with function to offer our scientists
an environment for collaboration and discovery.
