The Big Ten cancer centers have united…

to transform the conduct of cancer research through collaborative, hypothesis-driven, highly translational oncology trials that leverage the scientific and clinical expertise of Big Ten universities. The goal of the Big Ten Cancer Research Consortium is to create a unique team-research culture to drive science rapidly from ideas to treatment-changing paradigms. Within this innovative environment, today’s research leaders collaborate with and mentor the research leaders of tomorrow with the unified goal of improving the lives of all patients with cancer.

“In an era when targeted cancer treatments are no longer a prediction but a reality, these centers will incorporate their groundbreaking science into novel clinical trials. Working together as a consortium will yield impactful results at even a greater speed.”  –Susan Goodin, PharmD, executive officer
