How To Support the Innovative Translational Research Shared Resource

Vanderbilt-Ingram physicians and scientists are keenly aware of steps they could take that could help alter the tragic course of cancer. Rated as one of the best places by U.S. News & World Report for cancer care, Vanderbilt-Ingram has achieved phenomenal success since its inception in 1993. One of only 49 facilities designated by NCI as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, Vanderbilt-Ingram is the only comprehensive cancer center in Tennessee with a full spectrum of adult and pediatric specialties. Vanderbilt-Ingram is a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, the prestigious nonprofit alliance of 27 of the world's leading cancer centers who work together to improve care for cancer patients everywhere. Vanderbilt-Ingram is the only program in Tennessee and one of only eight in the country designated as a Blue Distinction Center for the treatment of complex and rare cancers by BlueCross BlueShield.

A standout leader in translational research — applying laboratory discoveries to patient care — Vanderbilt-Ingram is one of a select few to hold agreements with NCI to conduct Phase I and Phase II clinical trials, where innovative therapies are first evaluated in patient care. Vanderbilt-Ingram has served more than 30,000 new cancer patients since our establishment, and in the last 15 years the number of new cancer cases seen annually has more than tripled.

Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center is expanding to meet the needs of our community and our world. The collaborative Innovative Translational Research Shared Resource and other interdisciplinary research and programs planned or in place can help us ensure improved outcomes for cancer patients and can lead the way toward a cure. This can only be achieved through additional support from caring and visionary donors who choose to join us to defeat cancer. We invite you to invest in cancer research. Your gift can make a world of difference today and for future generations.
