Stanley S. Scott-LSU Health Cancer Center

Cancer is predicted to take 84 million lives over the next decade. In Louisiana alone, cancer is responsible for 180 deaths a week. The researchers and physicians of the Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center (SSSCC) are working to change these statistics. In 1990, Dr. Mervin Trail established the SSSCC as a place where specialists with different backgrounds could work together to combat this disease and improve the way cancer patients are evaluated and treated.

Since then, the SSSCC has grown to include 100 researchers and physians. Its programs provide communities with information on how to reduce their chances of developing cancer; help people detect cancer at early, treatable stages of the disease; diagnose and treat cancer patients; and further cancer research.
