A new world-class research center for early cancer detection


The Canary Foundation and Stanford University Medical Center have today announced their joint commitment of $20 million to create the Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection, a world-class research center dedicated to improving cancer early detection.

The Canary Foundation has previously committed to specific research into methods for the early detection of prostate cancer.

The center will be led by Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD, professor of radiology and by courtesy bioengineering, director of the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford and a member of the Stanford Cancer Center, and will include new faculty hires in both ex vivo and in vivo diagnostics.

The “New” Prostate Cancer InfoLink congratulates The Canary Foundation on yet another step toward better and earlier diagnopstic tests for cancer in general and prostate cancer in particular.
