About City of Hope

City of Hope LogoCity of Hope is recognized worldwide for its compassionate patient care, innovative science and translational research, which rapidly turns laboratory breakthroughs into promising new therapies.

At their park-like campus just northeast of Los Angeles, researchers advance ideas into discoveries, physicians bring emerging therapies to patients and students learn to transform the landscape of modern medicine – all supported by the generosity of philanthropists from across the country. As an independent medical and research institution, they break through the barriers that traditionally stand between scientists and physicians, accelerating the application of laboratory findings to more effective treatments. They work with urgency because time matters. Patients with cancer need better options today, not next week or next year.
