Watch the new video about our partnership!

An article about our partnership Connecting Students with Patients and Survivors to Enhance Cancer Research Training was just published in Cancer Research.


The Cornell Cancer Partnership is a unique collaboration between cancer researchers at Cornell University and the Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes, connecting researchers-in-training with individuals personally affected by cancer.

We bring the researchers out of the lab and connect them with the patient community on a regular basis. Together, we learn the science of cancer and practice speaking a common language.

We are eager to share our experience and resources with other communities to encourage the development of their own collaborations. Contact us at rnr45@cornell.edu.
