- What is Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center?
Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC) unites the cancer research efforts of the Harvard community. It is an expansion of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s original designation as a Comprehensive Cancer Center in the early 1970s.
As a consortium, DF/HCC brings together more than 1,000 faculty members from its seven Harvard-affiliated institutions: Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital Boston, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Public Health, and Massachusetts General Hospital.
- Does DF/HCC treat patients?
DF/HCC is a research entity. Our researchers may see patients, but referrals need to be made through the individual hospital with which the researcher is affiliated. Below are the links to Doctor Referral web sites for our five affiliated hospitals:
