Connecting Cancer Researchers with the Local Community


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
