Partners in Cancer Research

Three female family members share laughter in a kitchen

Scientists and doctors work every day to help us make progress against cancer. But they cannot do it alone. They need people like you—whether you have cancer, survived cancer, or are affected by cancer in your family—to help make advances. Learn more about cancer research and how you can become a partner in cancer research by taking part in a study.

Patients as Partners in Discovery and Progress

Through their contributions, patients and survivors are helping us move cancer research forward and changing what it means to have cancer.

"I saw a clinical trial as a chance to get tomorrow's medicine today."
