About Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has been working for decades to improve the quality of life and health outcomes among those affected by cancer. In 1947, a group of doctors founded this institution with the goal that adults and children would have access to cutting edge treatments in Boston while also conducting research on new cures. Today, Dana-Farber continues its commitment through groundbreaking work like developing immunotherapies so patients can attack their disease without experiencing debilitating side effects from chemotherapy or radiation therapy as well as studies using liquid biopsies which could make screenings unnecessary due to advancements in imaging technology.
