Message from the Director

New CGH Director, Dr. Gopal, discusses his medical career and first-hand experiences seeing global health research directly benefit people worldwide.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) established the Center for Global Health (CGH) in 2011 to help reduce the global burden of cancer. CGH develops initiatives and collaborates with other NCI divisions, NCI-Designated Cancer Centers, and countries to support cancer research and cancer research networks, promote cancer control planning, and build capacity in low- and middle-income countries.
