City of Hope is committed to transforming the future. Founded more than 100 years ago as a provider of charity care for tuberculosis patients, City of Hope is today a world-renowned biomedical research, treatment and education center. Our mission is to shorten the time from new research idea to new medical treatment in order to quickly bring cures to patients.
Our expertise in translating scientific breakthroughs into new therapies is fueled by physicians and scientists working together to develop innovative, disease-fighting therapies. They collaborate with more than 400 institutions on hundreds of research projects around the world and are aided by three on-site, FDA approved, manufacturing facilities. These facilities create an unparalleled ability to speed cures to patients.
City of Hope’s research has led to synthetic human insulin, now used worldwide by millions of people with diabetes, and to the lifesaving cancer drugs Rituxan, Avastin and Herceptin. Our researchers are pioneers in the study of cancer genetics and of cancer survivorship, and our revolutionary work in bone marrow transplantation has given rise to one of the largest, most successful programs of its kind.
City of Hope transforms not just treatments, but also patient care. Our revolutionary and compassionate patient-centered model has been adopted by hospitals nationwide, and our caregivers now train other caregivers around the world.
City of Hope is one of only 45 comprehensive cancer centers in the nation - the highest designation possible from the National Cancer Institute. We are a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, where our research and treatment protocols help advance care throughout the nation.
In short, the work done at City of Hope improves care for people worldwide.
Our excellence is a testament not just to the transformative power of science - but to the transformative power of philanthropy. Because of our supporters, City of Hope is able to quickly translate laboratory breakthroughs into groundbreaking treatments and patient care advances.
