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.
