The Leroy T. Canoles Jr.
Cancer Research Center
The Leroy T. Canoles Jr. Cancer Research Center researchers work to discover new tools that will improve lives in Hampton Roads and beyond. Success means improved care for the more than 1.5 million people in the U.S., 34,000 in Virginia, who will find out this year that they have cancer.
The center is named in honor of Norfolk lawyer, community leader and philanthropist Leroy T. "Buddy" Canoles, Jr.
