Two research powerhouses, Loyola University Chicago and the University of Notre Dame, are joining forces in a multidisciplinary cancer research collaboration.
The goal of the alliance is to provide direct support for revolutionary new cancer research, with the ultimate objective of making cancer a more manageable, and potentially curable, disease.
"This will enable world-class investigators and clinicians from different disciplines to hone in on key areas of cancer research," said M. Sharon Stack, PhD, the Ann F. Dunne and Elizabeth M. Riley Director of the Harper Cancer Research Institute at the University of Notre Dame. "The research we do today is going to set the standard for the future treatment of cancer patients."
