CCNY-MSK Partnership for Cancer Research

About the Partnership

In June, 2002, The City College of New York (CCNY) and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) established a Partnership based on mutual cancer research and training objectives.  The Partnership is funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The primary goals of the partnership are to:

•    Encourage and support basic and applied cancer research initiated by CCNY investigators.

•    Encourage and support research on health disparities and cancer burden in minority populations initiated by MSK investigators.

•    Implement joint education and training opportunities to attract minority students at all levels in their careers in cancer research, and to support their career development.

•    Use the combined resources of the institutions to develop and evaluate innovative health outreach initiatives to reduce the impact of cancer in medically underserved communities.
