$30 Million Campaign: Research is the Key to Lifesaving Cancer Treatment and Care

Wilmot Cancer Center Building

The Wilmot Cancer Institute's Office of Advancement raises support and awareness for one of our region's crown jewels in cancer care and research. The James P. Wilmot Cancer Institute has a rich, 40-year history of excellence in patient care, research, education, and community outreach in upstate New York. Every day, our dedicated physicians, nurses, and researchers work to provide outstanding care and deliver the latest and most effective precision medicine in a compassionate setting. 
In order to move forward in our quest to cure cancer, we are seeking to raise $30 million for cancer research, while providing the best cancer care to patients in Rochester and to those who travel here from across the nation. Research differentiates us from other providers in upstate New York. Our scientists and clinicians/researchers are now centered on four key programs: hallmarks of cancer, blood cancers, solid tumors, and cancer control and survivorship.
