It is an exciting time to be a part of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute community. Dana-Farber scientists and researchers are expanding their efforts in a variety of impactful areas, including cancer immunology, genomics, and chemical biology. Their teams are advancing therapies that could break new ground in cancer medicine and improve patient outcomes. With Laurie H. Glimcher, MD, a world-renowned immunologist, at the helm of the organization, Dana-Farber is poised to solve some of cancer’s most perplexing problems and reduce the burden of this disease on cancer patients and their families.
Dana-Farber is renowned for its unique, equal commitment to leading-edge research and top-quality patient care. This dual mission originated with founder Sidney Farber, MD, who pledged to bring his research discoveries from the laboratory bench straight to his patients in the clinic, and to treat the whole patient, not just their disease. Philanthropic funds that support basic science research play a major role in Dana-Farber’s work. For example, a recent gift of $2.3M has established a research fund and fellowship in cancer chemistry and biology aimed at fighting the most drug-resistant cancers.
As an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, the Institute also provides training for new generations of physicians and scientists; designs programs that promote public health, particularly among high-risk and underserved populations; and disseminates innovative patient therapies and scientific discoveries to its target community across the United States and throughout the world.
