About City of Hope's Women's Cancers Program
City of Hope has a history of innovation — including the technology behind Herceptin, a breakthrough drug for breast cancer.
Today, the Women’s Cancers Program at City of Hope brings together experts across disciplines in dynamic collaborations. And special on-site drug manufacturing facilities enable City of Hope to translate discovery into treatment faster and more efficiently.
Some exciting areas of research in the Women’s Cancers Program:
  • Seeking new treatments that defeat disease with fewer and milder side effects
  • Developing medicines that target women’s cancers precisely
  • Studying superfoods like mushroom and blueberries as ways to prevent or treat women’s cancers
  • Examining which choices women can make to stop cancer before it ever starts
