Cancer Research at MSKCC

Research Update

Fund raising is important, but results are critical

Your donations go to work in New York at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, one of the top cancer research centers in the world.

For many years we have supported the research of Dr. Renier Brentjens. The gene therapy techniques developed by Dr. Brentjens and his team have led to some very promising results in patients with advanced B cell cancers. These techniques are now being developed and applied to other types of cancer.  

Dr. Brentjens has moved on to become Deputy Director and Chair of the Department of Medicine at the Roswell Park Cancer Center in his hometown of Buffalo, New York. 

Dr. Brentjens remains a trusted adviser on cancer research to the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research (New York City) and we are now supporting the work of Dr. Anthony Daniyan who is a member of MSK’s Cellular Therapeutics Center working to develop the next generation of CAR T cell immunotherapy. 

Your efforts are making a real difference in the lives and prospects of cancer patients.

The hard working volunteers and participants of the annual Terry Fox Run in New York should be congratulated as we are making a very real difference in the lives of cancer patients. 

The researchers at MSKCC, Dr Brentjens and Dr. Daniyan in particular express their heartfelt thanks for making this possible, and for keeping your faith in their work. For more information regarding Dr Brentjens' and Dr. Daniyan's work, please click on the links below.
