Director’s Message

Thanks to the progress we have achieved since the National Cancer Act of 1971 was signed into law, the hope of ending cancer as we know it may finally be within our reach—not just for a few, or even many, but for all people. Achieving this goal will require robust and sustained investments in cancer research.
