The hippocratic cancer research foundations mission is to find and implement new treatments for cancer patients, by promoting and supporting breakthrough cancer research. Over half of all men and one-third of all women in the united states will develop cancer during their lifetime. Our foundations goal is to discover and implement new treatments in order to eliminate cancer and save lives. The foundation will support interdisciplinary research teams so they can join forces and empower investigators to address the most urgent questions in the fields of cancer biology and oncology in daring and innovative ways. Through the hippocratic cancer research foundation, we can create an opportunity to accelerate progress and heighten the impact of cancer research, particularly translational cancer research.
