Patients who visit the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins have access to some of the most innovative and advanced therapies in the world. Because Kimmel Cancer Center clinicians and research scientists work closely together, new drugs and treatments developed in the laboratory are quickly transferred to the clinical setting, offering patients cutting edge therapeutic options.
The Kimmel Cancer Center has a wide spectrum of specialty programs for both adults and children coping with cancer, including bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and new drug development. Additionally, those at high risk for developing breast, ovarian, colon and other cancers, may seek information about early detection, prevention and genetic counseling through a comprehensive genetics service.
We also offers complete family and patient services that include a Cancer Counseling Center, survivors and palliative care programs, and two residences for patients traveling from out-of-town to receive treatment.
The Kimmel Cancer Center furthered its commitment to excellence in patient care and research by building three facilities that enhance ongoing programs and services and promote new developments in cancer research, treatment and prevention: the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Building, the clinical care cancer facility, and the Bunting Blaustein and Koch Cancer Research Buildings, state-of-the-art cancer research and teaching buildings.
