The Transforming Cancer Care initiative at Stanford Medicine was created to re-imagine the delivery of cancer care and shape the future of cancer science. In this first installment of a three-part series on the impacts of funds raised via the Campaign for Stanford Medicine, Beverly Mitchell, MD, director of the Stanford Cancer Institute, shares some of the recent discoveries and progress that have been made possible. From increasing the number of clinical trials and funding new innovative ideas, to recruiting world-class faculty and implementing the use of new technologies, the institute is using the funds raised during the campaign to transform the delivery of care and accelerate the development of cures.
Officially concluding last August, the campaign raised $1.7 billion from more than 30,000 individuals, corporations and foundations. There's more on how those funds are making an impact at this website.
