About the CCNY-MSK Partnership
The U54 grant numbers are: CA132378 (CCNY) and CA137788 (MSK)
In June 2002, The City College of New York (CCNY) and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) established a Partnership based on mutual cancer research and training objectives. The Partnership is funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) under grants U54 CA132378 (CCNY) / U54 CA137788 (MSK). The primary goals of the partnership are to:
Encourage and support basic and applied cancer research initiated by CCNY investigators.
Encourage and support research on health disparities and cancer burden in minority populations initiated by MSK investigators.
Implement joint education and training opportunities to attract minority students at all levels in their careers in cancer research, and to support their career development.
Use the combined resources of the institutions to develop and evaluate innovative health outreach initiatives to reduce the impact of cancer in medically underserved communities.
