Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) (founded 1898) is a cancer research and treatment center located in Buffalo, New York founded by Dr. Roswell Park. Candace S. Johnson, PhD, is President & CEO of Roswell Park Cancer Institute. RPCI was the first dedicated medical facility for cancer treatment and research in the United States, and is the only upstate New York facility to hold the National Cancer Institute designation of "comprehensive cancer center." The Institute, which conducts clinical research on cancer as well as developing new drugs, provides advanced treatment for all forms of adult and pediatric cancer and serves as a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. The RPCI campus, spread out in 15 separate buildings of approximately two million sq ft, occupies 28 acres (11 ha) on the 100-acre (40 ha) Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) in downtown Buffalo, and includes 1,500,000 square feet (140,000 m2) of space equally distributed between clinical programs and research/education functions. A separate hospital building, completed in 1998, houses a diagnostic and treatment center. The campus also includes a medical research complex as well as research and education focused space. In 1898, Roswell Park Cancer Institute was established by Dr. Roswell Park, who was a professor of surgery at the University at Buffalo School of Medicine. Dr. Park said that "Only through a deliberate well-planned, combined attack from various directions by means fitted for such work could real advances be made and further the relationship of laboratory work, clinical study and education must be closely associated."
