Our 50th Anniversary
Fifty years ago, the HICCC became one of the first cancer centers in the country designated by the National Cancer Institute, sparking explosive growth and expansion of cancer research and care at Columbia. The $40M grant integrated 23 subprograms in 10 departments and divisions across Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

Our researchers and clinicians are transforming cancer care and research, looking at cancer from all angles to pioneer cutting-edge therapies personalized for each patient.
