Making A Difference... FASTER

The PROMISE Study is run by a Dream Team – a collaboration of top researchers from different institutions – who come together to develop new and improved approaches to cancer.  

By pooling their knowledge and resources, they're working together to make rapid progress, and move therapies and treatments from the laboratory to doctors’ offices, where they can benefit patients.
