Extramural Collaborations

Memorial Sloan Kettering’s investigators working in a variety of areas participate in research with scientists from other academic and research institutions. Teaming up with other organizations allows us to make the most of our expertise in cancer research and related topics while gaining valuable insight from researchers who are focused on the same overarching goals — exploring new ways to cure, control, and prevent disease.

Many of these outside collaborations are funded with philanthropic support or government grants.
