Our Client is recognized worldwide for its compassionate patient care, innovative science and translational research, which rapidly turns laboratory breakthroughs into promising new therapies. We are one of only 41 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centersnationwide and a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. An independent biomedical research, treatment and education institution, we are a leader in the fight to conquer cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. 

On our park-like campus just northeast of Los Angeles, researchers advance ideas into discoveries, physicians bring emerging therapies to patients, and students learn to transform the landscape of modern medicine – all supported by the generosity of philanthropists from across the country. Every day we pursue new and better ways to improve the lives of men, women and children here and around the world – and have for almost 100 years.

 

Compassion drives our innovation. Every discovery we make and new treatment we develop gives patients the chance to live longer, better and more fully .As an independent medical and research institution, we can break through the barriers that traditionally stand between scientists and physicians, accelerating the application of laboratory findings to more effective treatments. We work with urgency because time matters. Patients with cancer need better options today, not next week or next year.

 

For many people, this is where hope begins.
