|Title:||National Cancer Institute Early Signage|
Congress established the National Cancer Act of 1937 to provide additional support for cancer research – it was the first time Congress had appropriated funds toward a non-communicable disease. The Act established the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as the federal government's primary agency to address research and training needs for the cause, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.
