Cancer education and outreach

Expanding the Reach of Cancer Research

Strengthening the link between advances in cancer research and the community we serve is important. We work to address high rates of cancer in Chicagoans by implementing new cancer prevention and control studies and improving screening rates. We train the next generation of cancer researchers and clinicians by providing robust educational and professional development opportunities for learners at all levels.
