UC Davis Medical Center is home to one of only 49 National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated comprehensive cancer centers. The UC Davis Center is the only comprehensive cancer center in California’s Central Valley and inland northern California. It serves a region with a population of roughly 6 million people. The Center has $63 million in NHI and California Healthcare Institute funding.
The NCI, a division of the NIH, awards University of California, Davis roughly $200 million annually to conduct cancer research.
Here are the top 5 NCI grants this year:

UC Davis School of Medicine in Sacramento ranked in the top 20 percent of national medical schools for research funding by the National Institute of Health (NIH). According to the 2017 report issued by the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research, the school received $176 million to fund 356 grant proposals last year. This placed UC Davis at 26th in the nation for NIH funding.
White blood cells help the immune system protect the body from infections and diseases. Along with attacking infections, white blood cells also have the ability to bring other cells together to help in the fight. With these known abilities of white blood cells, life science researchers have been researching ways to amplify the abilities of these cells to target specific illnesses, such as tumors.Read More

An historic collaboration between the University of California Davis and China's BGI, the world’s largest genomics organization, has dramatically increased the University's genome sequencing capabilities and promises to open up altogether new research opportunities in the life sciences community with genomic studies of plants, animals, humans and microbes. The new joint endeavor is called BGI@UC Davis and will benefit both UCD and China's first citizen-managed, non-profit research institution.
