Sun Yat-Sen University Cancer Center
Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center (SYSUCC) was established in 1964 and was one of the four earliest tumor hospitals in China. It is one of the affiliated hospitals of the prestigious Sun Yat-sen University. Located in the city of Guangzhou, it is the largest integrated cancer center in southern China for cancer care, education, research and prevention.
After nearly 50 years of development, SYSUCC has become one of the largest integrated centers in China for cancer care, education, research and prevention. Based on its comprehensive strengths, SYSUCC plays a critical role across China, especially in the Guangdong province, in the latest advances for tumor prevention and treatment.
Now, SYSUCC is a level III (highest rank in China) and class A hospital. It was awarded as the “key subject of Guangdong province” in 1999 and as “key subject of China” in 2001. As a renowned tertiary care center, it accepts patients from all over China and all over the world.
SYSUCC was awarded many prestigious titles, such as, national key disciplines (Oncology), State Key Laboratory (SKL) of Oncology in South China, National Key Laboratory (Ministry of Education), Provincial Key Laboratory (Guangdong Province), Biotherapy Center in South China, and National Center for Clinical Trials of Anti-cancer Drugs, Doctoral Degree Granting Institution, Post-doctoral Research Station, and Guangdong Anti-cancer Association Partnering Institution.
SYSUCC houses the editorial office of the Chinese Journal of Cancer (CJC). Entirely published in English, the CJC publishes original research, reviews, extra views, perspectives, supplements, and spotlights in all areas of cancer research. CJC was named the authoritative journal of clinical medicine in 2011. In 2012, the number of new scientific projects and their associated amount of financial support increased significantly with a governmental provisional budget for scientific research exceeding 100 Million RMB for the first time. 2012 was also a record year for the number of scientific projects obtained from the National Natural Science Foundation of China, with in total 55 projects for an amount of about 35 Millions RMB in funding. Accordingly, the number of SCI publications reached 253 for a total cumulated impact factor of 892.
Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center is very active in its international exchanges and has developed numerous substantial collaborations with leading overseas medical institutions over the years. In 1980, SYSUCC was designated as World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Center for research on cancer. Since 2003, SYSUCC became a sister institution of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. In 2004, SYSUCC has set up a joint laboratory with Karolinska Institute for research in immunotherapy, molecular virology and ontological epidemiology.
