The Moores Cancer Center is located on the campus of the University of California, San Diego in the third most populous county in California. The campus is located on 1,200 acres of coastal woodland in the research-rich “Golden Triangle” in La Jolla. It is adjacent to a host of biomedical research institutes, including the Burnham Institute, the Salk Institute, the Scripps Research Institute, and the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology. It is surrounded by over 470 biomedical and biopharmaceutical companies, which makes this one of the most powerful engines of medical progress in the country.
One of just two U.S. branches of LICR is located on the UC San Diego campus, enabling powerful scientific synergies with the Cancer Center. Ludwig’s top leaders sit on our Senior Leaders Council.
The Cancer Center has very close collaborations with SIO, which is seeking to develop new chemotherapeutic agents from algae and other natural living organisms from the sea.
Cancer Center researchers rely upon the powerful computing power of SDSC, one of just two such centers in the nation and housed on the UC San Diego campus.
LIAI focuses on understanding the immune response to infectious agents and cancers. Located just steps from the Cancer Center, collaborative synergies are a natural byproduct of this proximity.
SDSU, one of four nationally accredited schools of public health in California, is located in one of the most vibrant and culturally diverse areas in the U.S. Our federally funded partnership with SDSU creates research opportunities for diverse populations.
Salk conducts molecular biology and genetics research to provide new understanding and potential new therapies and treatments for a range of diseases, including cancer.
This organization seeks to understand the underlying biological mechanisms that generate good health or, when they go awry, cause disease. With interest in drug discovery, stem cells, nanomedicine and translational medicine, working to discover the next generation of treatments for cancer and other diseases.
