Bold Discoveries in Cancer Care
Research has been at the heart of our institution since the hospital opened more than a century ago. Since our founding, Fox Chase scientists have earned two Nobel Prizes, a Kyoto Prize, and a Lasker Prize. Our research mission is what allows us to keep our elite designation as an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, as we continue to perform the added depth of research done in-house.
Fox Chase research programs provide essential benefits to our patients because of the close collaboration between our scientists and physicians. This special partnership is the basis for what is called translational medicine, or the process in which discoveries in the lab are "translated" into new treatments for patients. These translational discoveries are the reason we're able to offer patients participation in the latest clinical trials before other hospitals, and it’s an essential part of providing a full continuum of care.
