Impact of Philanthropy

Cancer survivors standing together

UCLA Health Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center directors believe the key to world-class achievement is to focus on three strategic priorities: recruit and retain the best faculty; provide them with the tools to succeed; and support them by funding novel ideas that advance the understanding and treatment of cancer. This is where the UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation comes in.
