The Geoffrey Beene Cancer Research Center at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center was established in 2006 by G. Thompson Hutton, Esq., (Founder, Trustee & CEO of the Geoffrey Beene Foundation) and Harold Varmus, MD. Since its inception, the Geoffrey Beene LLC. and the Geoffrey Beene Foundation have been the sole funding sources. Together, they have funded approximately 120 separate new revolutionary research initiatives across all cancers to develop new treatments for cancer patients.
The goal of the Geoffrey Beene Cancer Research Center is to provide direct support for revolutionary new cancer research, with the ultimate goal of making cancer a more manageable, and potentially curable, disease.

Only with “new” research can there be hope … more “new” research saves lives. “Revelations™” will “Frame” the urgency and provide a platform to underscore the necessity for people globally to put greater pressure on private enterprise and government to provide greater funding for cancer research.
