Our mission is to eradicate cancer. In this quest, we're seeking National Cancer Institute designation, which is the gold standard in cancer research and care. Patients at NCI-designated centers are first in line for the most promising clinical trials and the newest laboratory discoveries.
We are uniquely positioned to transform cancer research and patient care for generations to come. We are poised to drive advances we can scarcely imagine.
You can Be Part of the Cure by supporting our efforts to achieve NCI designation with a gift made through KU Endowment, the fundraising arm of the University of Kansas and The University of Kansas Hospital's partner in philanthropy.
