The Race to Discover New Treatments

Imagine a world without cancer

Never before has biomedical research offered so much potential for life-changing treatments and cures. State-of-the-art technology and breakthroughs in genetics, targeted therapies, immunology, and nanomedicine are leading to remarkable advances that benefit patients now.

Research gifts further the advancement of scientists on the brink of discovery and offer immense potential for changing how we treat illness and injuries in the future.

What Your Gift Can Do

  • Speed life-saving discoveries to prevent and treat disease by providing seed funds for research
  • Quickly move discoveries out of the laboratory and to the bedside by supporting clinical trials
  • Put more researchers to work on finding cures by establishing professorships to help us recruit the most talented physicians, scientists, and nurse leaders
  • Give our researchers the resources and equipment they need to search for answers
  • Fund nursing research in clinical protocols and new tools to improve patient care
