Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC), an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center, was founded to integrate and build upon the collective talent and resources of the Harvard cancer research community. Five Boston academic medical institutions—Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Massachusetts General Hospital—and two Harvard Schools—the Harvard Medical School and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health—combined their scientific strengths to create a rich, collaborative environment that transcends institutional borders. DF/HCC is the powerful successor organization to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center, one of the original cancer centers designated by the NCI in 1973.
Today, more than 1,100 DF/HCC cancer researchers are working together in innovative clinical-, translational-, basic-, and population-based research programs. Our members receive in excess of $600 million in cancer research funding. Cost-effective shared facilities, or centralized core laboratories, enable access to cutting edge technologies and allow us to build world-class scientific archives. Our members are training and educating the next generation of cancer researchers. Thousands of patients are being enrolled in our clinical trials.
As one of the largest cancer research enterprises in the world, DF/HCC is committed to maximizing the impact of its research for cancer patients and ultimately realizing a world without cancer.
