We’re at a turning point

Your gift allows us to swiftly explore promising avenues of research, as soon as they emerge. That’s why, with your help, we plan to raise $6 billion by 2030.

Boundary-pushing initiatives

Your donations raise essential funds to support our mission of ending cancer for life, across these six strategic initiatives.   

Clinical innovation

Innovating clinical strategy

We’re so much more than a hospital — we’re driving clinical care and research to benefit people affected by cancer worldwide.
The CDC estimates that between 2015 and 2050, the number of people with cancer in the United States will increase by nearly 50% because of the growth and aging of the population. At MSK, we’re focused on transforming cancer care so that all patients can experience excellent outcomes and maintain their quality of life wherever they receive care.

We’re committed to elevating the standards of cancer care for everyone.

Scientific discovery

Driving scientific discovery

Scientific discovery is the foundation beneath every bold and lifesaving innovation in cancer care.
MSK is driving scientific discovery in cancer medicine, resulting in new learnings, treatments, and cures. By developing new research technologies, MSK will push the boundaries of oncology and answer the most challenging questions.

Scientific discovery leads to new ways to cure cancer.

Harnessing the immune system

Cancer immunobiology is one of the most transformational breakthroughs in modern medicine, and many advancements were driven by MSK.
MSK researchers are dedicated to understanding an individual’s immune system in all its complexity — from clarifying what makes current immunotherapies viable for some patients but not others, to developing new immune-based treatments and vaccines, to discovering the next generation of immunotherapy targets.

New immunotherapies have lifelong benefits.

Precision oncology

Expanding precision oncology

We’ve laid the foundation for a future in which profound molecular insights can give rise to powerful new therapies and diagnostic tools.
To help us understand the full range of genetic changes that help cancer grow, spread, and respond to or resist treatment, we need to develop the next generation of tools. This will allow our scientists to see cancer in new ways, create innovative diagnostic tools, and sharpen the accuracy of precision cancer therapy.

We’re pushing forward more effective and targeted therapies.

Data science

Transforming data into cures

Data science offers unprecedented insights into each patient’s cancer and helps guide treatment decisions.
As we expand our data collection and computational capabilities, we are on the brink of even greater discoveries to improve patient care everywhere. As we study how cancer evolves in real time, we can learn to get ahead of it and stop it in its tracks. We may even be able to prevent cancer from developing in the first place.

Doctors and scientists are improving diagnoses and predicting responses.

Education and training

Developing the new generation of leaders

Up-and-coming physicians and scientists are poised to discover new cures and make sure everyone gets the best cancer care.
People are at the core of all our progress. Skilled, compassionate, and farsighted physicians, nurses, and scientists are essential to creating and delivering new cures and treatments. That’s why MSK is committed to recruiting, training, and retaining transformative talent and creating opportunities for all people, regardless of their background.

Our students are the future of oncology.
