About Us

Who Do We serve?

  • CCCLabs’ official name is “Cancer Program Research Space, Operations & Projects” (formerly “CCC Research Operations, Equipment & Facilities”).
  • Our team provides services for CCC members and labs in following buildings: The Comprehensive Cancer Center building, Wiseman, Tzagournis, BRT, Starling-Loving, James Cancer Hospital, Gateway, and the Polaris Innovation Center.
  • We are sometimes confused with FOD because of our involvement in facility-related issues; however, while our groups work closely together, we are separate entities with different responsibilities.
