City of Hope and the Israel Cancer Research Fund are proud to establish the Jacki and Bruce Barron Cancer Research Scholars Program with a leadership gift from The Harvey L. Miller Family Foundation.

The goal of this program is to foster innovative collaborative research and promote the exchange of ideas among exceptional researchers in the United States and Israel. The program will advance scientists' understanding of cancer and develop lifesaving therapies, novel diagnostic approaches and prevention strategies by leveraging the research knowledge, expertise and shared resources in the two countries.  

The four interrelated components of the program are: 

  1. Collaborative grants to scientists at City of Hope and in Israel that would meet the highest standards of peer-reviewed research
  2. Postdoctoral training at City of Hope for promising young Israeli scientists
  3. Sabbaticals for established Israeli scientists at City of Hope and for City of Hope investigators in Israel
  4. An annual symposium that would bring researchers from the United States and Israel together to share research discoveries.
