Cancer Research in China


The National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Center for Global Health (CGH) promotes, supports, and informs the development of cooperative research projects between U.S. and Chinese scientists, research teams, and institutions to accelerate progress against cancer.

Now is a unique time for the NCI to build cooperation in China, as the Chinese Government has recently made substantial investments in several areas of science and technology, and many Chinese-born scientists who have trained in the United States are returning to China to assume leadership positions in key research institutions. This provides a unique opportunity both to work with world-class scientists and to participate in the development of China's biomedical research enterprise.
