May is National Cancer Research Month

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) acknowledges May as National Cancer Research Month, declared by the United States Congress in 2007, in recognition of the AACR and its focus on high quality, innovative cancer research.

As one of only 41 designated comprehensive cancer centers in the nation, The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and
Richard J. Solove Research Institute, is dedicated to the creation of knowledge in laboratory, clinical and population-based cancer research. We apply those discoveries to develop more effective approaches to cancer prevention, diagnosis and therapies – providing tomorrow’s standard of care, today.

Research Made Possible by Pelotonia

Pelotonia is a grassroots bike tour with one goal: to end cancer. One hundred percent of the funds raised by this groundbreaking event go to innovative and life saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.

In the first four years of the event, Pelotonia raised over $42 million dollars, with millions of dollars dedicated to furthering exciting new cancer research and to training our most promising students who will help cure cancer! Cancer is a complex disease and curing it will take a multidisciplinary effort from researchers, including students, in different fields.
