Ochsner Joins Cancer Consortium


  The Louisiana Cancer Research Consortium (LCRC) has added Ochsner Health System as a member of its health care group that also includes LSU Health Sciences Center, Tulane University and Xavier University of Louisiana. The addition of Ochsner's health network means the consortium can expand its cancer research activities, including providing more opportunities for patients to participate in clinical trials.

  The consortium's goal is to develop a world-class cancer research and education resource in the New Orleans area. LCRC researchers attract more than $30 million in federal cancer research grant funding to the region every year.
