Research and Education
In the fight against cancer, Yale has been at the forefront of understanding the fundamental mechanisms of cancer biology and in developing effective therapies for the treatment of cancer. Yale Cancer Center harnesses the resources of Yale School of Medicine and Yale New Haven Hospital to advance cancer research, prevention, and patient care, as well as community outreach and education.
At the 2018 Luminary Award, the World Affairs Council of Connecticut celebrated Connecticut’s global leadership in cancer research and innovation. The Council is proud to honor Yale Cancer Center, a ground-breaking center for global health, as the 2018 Luminary Award recipient.
