The Cancer Supercluster (CaSC) is a specially sanctioned university initiative to enhance interdisciplinary cancer research. Colorado State University’s Cancer Supercluster has globally competitive expertise and was created to leverage funding in cancer research.

The mission of the CSU Cancer Supercluster is to:

  • Stimulate collaborative basic and clinical research programs at CSU
  • Accelerate discovery of tools and methodologies to detect and prevent cancer
  • Develop effective treatments and products to aid the fight against cancer
  • Increase recognition of CSU as a world leader in cancer research

To accomplish this mission, the Cancer Supercluster has both an academic arm, to address research and educational goals, and an enterprise partner (CSU Ventures), to facilitate translation of research discoveries to market.

The hub of the Cancer Supercluster is the Flint Animal Cancer Center. The mission of the FACC is to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer in pet animals, translating our research and knowledge to also benefit people with cancer. The faculty and staff of the FACC work to pursue a cure for cancer through clinical service, clinical trials and research.
