Philanthropy

Donations and Philanthropy

Since its inception, the University of Chicago has made scientific discovery -- pioneering research -- the driving force in both biology and medicine. This emphasis on basic and clinical research is especially true in Radiation and Cellular Oncology, where investigators and clinicians work in close collaboration to ensure breakthroughs made in the laboratory are quickly translated into improved care for our cancer patients.

As Federal funding for research continues to decline, however, we must look for private support to sustain and advance our many academic and investigative programs. You can play a vital and important role in supporting cancer research and treatment programs through your charitable contributions. The time to give is now.

Through your generous support you can make a difference. We invite you to become a member of our philanthropic community, and to join our mission to find cures for cancer, provide state-of-the art cancer therapies, and train future cancer clinician/scientists. If you would like to learn more about our scientific programs and how a gift or donation can make a difference, please contact Ralph Weichselbaum.
