Science + Engineering... Conquering Cancer Together

National Cancer Institute Research Programs

As a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated center of excellence for over four decades, MIT has been at the center of the nation's efforts to conquer cancer. The wealth of fundamental discoveries that emerged under the aegis of Koch Institute-predecessor, the MIT Center for Cancer Research, have helped shape the face of today's rapid progress. Applying our great strengths in science and technology, and working closely with our clinical collaborators, we remain committed to unraveling the complexities of this disease and bringing new discoveries to patients.
