Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center Celebrates 40 Years of Turning Research Into Results

40Four Decades of Discovery

From the beginning, Kimmel Cancer Center leaders had a unique vision of what our cancer center should be.  Its hallmarks were interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation that transcended the artificial boundaries of individual departments, laboratories, and clinics.  Our mission was to rapidly transfer discoveries about cancer from the bench to the bedside.  That focus and mission remains unchanged today.  With the convergence of technology, brilliant scientific minds, and the commitment of those who have funded these discoveries, we have come to a time when we can begin to alter the course of cancer in ways we could only imagine four decades ago.  This is our decade.
