At the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, we don’t just treat cancer patients. We practice a fully-integrated approach to oncology, from research and training programs for pre- and post-doctoral level students to outreach programs for cancer survivors and their families to address their physical and emotional health. Through cutting-edge clinical trials and conventional cancer treatments, each patient, their family and caregivers receive expert, humanitarian care.
As one of the top cancer care hospitals, SKCC provides patients with tailored treatments specific to the patient's condition.
Cancer Moon Shot
The Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University is part of the White House Cancer Moonshot Task Force. The Blue Ribbon Panel is composed of leading experts from a broad range of scientific areas, including biology, immunology, genomics, diagnostics, bioinformatics, and cancer prevention and treatment. This Blue Ribbon Panel of experts was established as a working group of the National Cancer Advisory Board (NCAB) to assist the board in providing this advice. The panel’s charge was to provide expert advice on the vision, proposed scientific goals, and implementation of the Cancer Moonshot.
