Our Mission Is Discovery
For more than 70 years, the Sloan Kettering Institute has set the pace for cancer science.
The Sloan Kettering Institute (SKI) is the experimental research arm of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Discoveries made in SKI labs are an important driver of clinical progress at MSK and beyond. Our research spans nine program areas:
Discover how we do cancer science.
A Collaborative Approach
Collaboration is a hallmark of the research enterprise at SKI. Our scientists collaborate across programs, across disciplines, and across institutions.
Collaborative Research Centers
Researchers from SKI and Memorial Hospital join forces in 23 established Collaborative Research Centers. These innovative centers bring together laboratory scientists and clinicians to spark innovation.
Joint Graduate Programs
SKI enjoys close relationships with neighbors Rockefeller University and Weill Cornell Medicine, and partners with them in several joint graduate programs.
Tri-Institutional Therapeutics Discovery Institute
This innovative partnership between MSK, Rockefeller, Weill Cornell, and industry aims to speed the translation of basic scientific discoveries into promising new medicines.
