Pelotonia’s Impact Gets Us Closer to a Cancer-Free World

Pelotonia '16 is just around the corner, and this week on Toward a Cancer-Free World, The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute Director and CEO Michael Caligiuri, MD, discusses why this national cycling movement continues to be so important. Every single dollar raised from Pelotonia goes directly to cancer research at Ohio State and the OSUCCC – James, and Dr. Caligiuri tells us those dollars support research that might not have been possible without Pelotonia funding, making way for dynamic cancer discoveries benefiting patients in Ohio and beyond.

From research that leads to delivering prostate cancer therapy directly to cancer cells through a micro-needle to creating a virus specifically designed to attack and destroy brain cancer cells, Pelotonia dollars propel these innovative ideas and many more.
