Research pioneered at City of Hope and its renowned Beckman Research Institute has improved the lives of men, women and children throughout the world.
Our reputation for scientific excellence – for fundamentally advancing the world’s understanding of cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases – stems from our determination to aggressively pursue lines of inquiry outside traditional paradigms.
As an independent biomedical, treatment and education center, we have the infrastructure and collaborative energy to move from bold, innovative concept to powerful new treatment swiftly. We conduct more clinical trials than most cancer centers and are a national leader in translational research, where ideas continuously flow between investigators and clinicians.
Many of our breakthroughs have transformed the landscape of modern medicine. We helped launch the biotech industry with the development of technologies that led to the first synthetic human insulin and human growth hormone. Our research also made possible the widely used cancer fighting drugs, Herceptin, Rituxan and Avastin.
Discoveries happen at City of Hope because we foster an environment that supports intellectual creativity and freedom – the kind of thinking that enables us to redefine the future of medicine.
