Research Cures Cancer

Here at Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center, more than 250 cancer researchers are dedicated to improving, extending, and saving the lives of people with cancer.

We know that research cures cancer. IU has done it before: Four decades ago, an IU team led by Lawrence Einhorn, MD, developed the cure for testis cancer. Today, our physicians and scientists continue to test new ideas, take risks, and innovate. Your support of cancer research at IU ensures that our physicians and scientists have the resources they need to conduct research that changes outcomes.
