The IU Simon Cancer Center is a research center within Indiana University School of Medicine and serves as a central hub of cancer research across Indiana University. The center has nearly 250 researchers who conduct all phases of cancer research, from laboratory studies to clinical trials to population-based studies that address environmental and behavioral factors that contribute to cancer.
The center’s physician-scientists care for Indiana patients through a partnership with IU Health, the state’s largest and most comprehensive health system. In addition to directing treatment at the Simon Cancer Center in downtown Indianapolis, IU Simon Cancer Center members oversee the care of Indiana children with cancer at Riley Hospital for Children, and influence care at the health system’s 16 hospitals across the state.
IU Simon Cancer Center faculty members also serve patients from disadvantaged and diverse backgrounds through longstanding relationships with the Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital and the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center, both in downtown Indianapolis.
