By combining leading-edge science with true compassion and personalized treatment for each and every patient, scientists at City of Hope have a single, shared goal: to eliminate cancer.
Every patient who comes through our doors benefits from that goal. And the discoveries and innovations we put to work for them often end up benefiting people the entire world over.
Outsmarting cancer requires a team of smart people. Recognizing our team’s accomplishments in cancer research, treatment, patient care, education and prevention, the National Cancer Institute has designated City of Hope as a comprehensive cancer center. That is an honor reserved for only 50 institutions nationwide.

To retain that designation, City of Hope has to hold itself to the highest possible standards. But what matters most is how those standards translate into the best possible care for patients.

Cancer Center Research Programs

Our multidisciplinary research programs are led by some of the world’s most expert cancer scientists and clinicians. Through constant collaboration and interaction between all programs, they maximize the benefits they’re able to deliver.
The result? New treatments capable of improving outcomes for patients here, across the U.S. and around the world.
How does that synergy work?
