A message from Stephen G. Emerson, M.D., Ph.D.
Director, Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center
Clyde Wu Professor of Immunology and Medicine
There is hardly a person whose life has not been touched by cancer. Many of us can share a story about how cancer has affected our lives and the lives of our loved ones. As one of the most common diseases in the United States, cancer knows few boundaries.
Yet today is an exciting moment for cancer research, when we can build upon the discoveries of the past 20 years and translate this knowledge into new or improved treatment to benefit patients and their families for generations.
Scientists at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center (HICCC) are leading this vital fight to discover the best ways to find cancer and cure it, while our doctors are working every day to provide the best possible medical care to members of our community and beyond.
The HICCC exists for one reason only: to save lives. It is an honor to be leading this dedicated team of doctors and scientists.
Together, we can fight cancer – and cure it.
