Memorial Sloan Kettering / City College of New York Partnership

The CCNY-MSKCC Partnership is a collaboration between The City College of New York and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Our goal is to improve the understanding of cancer health disparities and of their impact on socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, including racial and ethnic minority groups.

The partnership, created to support collaboration among the two institutions, addresses cancer health disparities through research, training, and community outreach. It is funded by the National Cancer Institute’s U54 program, an initiative that develops partnerships between minority-serving institutions and leading cancer centers.
