Recognizing that, despite its prevalence, bladder cancer tends to receive less attention and funding than other cancers, Erwin L. Greenberg and his wife, Stephanie Cooper Greenberg, chose to make a meaningful difference by directing their $15 million gift toward this single area of immense need. The Greenbergs hope the co-investment with the Johns Hopkins University will help the Institute promote discovery, improve patient care and outcomes, and ultimately drive the global field of bladder cancer research closer to a cure.
Erwin L. Greenberg and his wife, Stephanie Cooper Greenberg, discuss bladder cancer and their donation that established the Johns Hopkins Greenberg Bladder Cancer Institute. It is a collaborative initiative of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, the Brady Urological Institute, the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the School of Medicine.
