Research Programs

Frontier Research at the Koch Institute

Creative exploration at the leading edge of cancer research has often led to important, transformative new discoveries that themselves can lead to major improvements in patient care. Yet early-stage ideas all too often do not qualify for funding from traditional government sources. The Koch Institute is deeply committed to supporting boldly conceived, highly innovative, and highly collaborative research proposals from our faculty. Your gift of an expendable or endowment fund for Frontier Research will provide critically important support for the development of new, more effective ways to detect, monitor, treat, and even prevent cancer.

Koch Institute Clinical Investigator Program

Koch Clinical Investigators (KCI) work side by side with MIT scientists and engineers to invent new solutions to the problems of cancer. The KCI program provides "top of their class" physician-scientists a unique opportunity to participate in cutting-edge cancer research while maintaining clinical activity at Boston-area oncology treatment centers. more >>
