Giving: Giving To The Purdue Center For Cancer Research


Today’s research fuels tomorrow’s cancer treatments.
  At the Purdue Center for Cancer Research we specialize in research that saves lives by translating laboratory findings into new and innovative therapies as quickly as possible. Through private support like yours, we are able to move discoveries forward from the lab to the clinic more quickly.

Your philanthropic gift has most recently helped fund projects such as:

  • Helping guide surgeons in brain surgery to test and more precisely remove cancerous tissue.

  • Developing a way to detect and measure cancer levels in a living cell by using tiny gold particles with tails of synthetic DNA. This discovery could lead to better and more individualized treatment to cancer patients.

These discoveries depend on your funding and support.

You are supporting a National Cancer Institute recognized cancer research center – one of only 68 in the nation. Your gift is instrumental in our mission of discovery and our goal to cure cancer.

To make a gift by credit card, debit card, or directly from your checking account, select “Purdue Center for Cancer Research” under the University category on our Giving Page.
