  CREIGHTON UNIVERSITY           

The Home Of Lynch Syndrome Research and Care

 

 

 

The Hereditary Cancer Center at Creighton University, founded in 1984 by Henry Lynch, M.D., is one of the oldest and most comprehensive research-based centers in the world devoted to the prevention and early detection of hereditary forms of cancer.

While he frequently travels the United States and abroad to lecture and consult, Dr. Lynch and his team of cancer experts continue to see patients regularly at Creighton University’s Hereditary Cancer Prevention Center in Omaha.

 

 

 

Cancer Research and Patient Care Management

 

Global collaborations with researchers and clinicians in the United States, Canada, South America, Europe and Asia have allowed the center to remain at the forefront of hereditary cancer research and patient care management, particularly in the following areas, each of which Dr. Lynch described first:

• hereditary breast ovarian cancer syndrome

• familial atypical multiple mole melanoma (FAMMM) syndrome in association with pancreatic cancer

• hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) syndrome, also referred to as Lynch syndrome
