Advance discovery and develop interventions to stop cancer
Imagine a future in which your body responds to cancer like it was fighting a virus; your medications are tailor-made just for you; only cancer cells are damaged by treatment.
Think about the here and now. Almost all of us are personally affected by cancer. In just a few short years, cancer is projected to be the number one disease killing Americans of all ages.
We want to stop cancer from reaching that milestone.
Already with your help, we’re making progress.
- We’re uncovering the secrets to metastasis so we can stop cancer’s deadly spread.
- We’re tackling the toughest cancers, like pancreatic and head and neck cancers, to help patients beat the odds like never before.
- We’re developing new therapies that harness the immune system to fight cancer.
Today, we have the tools—genetics and big data—and, at UChicago, the talent across a wide spectrum of expertise to bring the future near. Like you, we’re curious. We lead in cancer research and care because we answer, with science, the questions most important to you.
Together, we can save lives.
