The George Washington Cancer Center consists of two divisions:
Katzen Cancer Research
The goal of the Katzen Cancer Research Center is to attract outstanding scientists to contribute to the George Washington University (GW) cancer research efforts. With the dedication of the new, state-of-the-art clinical facilities, funded by the donation, the Center is poised to considerably expand its research efforts by adding scientists, clinicians and support staff dedicated to the detection and treatment of patients with cancer, blood disorders and bone marrow disease.
Institute for Patient Centered Initiatives and Health Equity
The Institute for Patient-Centered Initiatives and Health Equity (formerly the GW Cancer Institute) at the GW Cancer Center was inaugurated in 2003, chartered by the university in 2004 and re-chartered in 2009. Our mission is to foster healthy communities, prepared patients, responsive health care professionals and supportive health care systems through applied cancer research, education, advocacy and translation of evidence into practice.
