About Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC)
DF/HCC, a National Cancer Institute (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.
Today, more than 1,100 DF/HCC cancer researchers are working together in innovative clinical, translational, basic, and population-based research programs.
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.
