The Brooklyn College Cancer Center (CommUnity Outreach, Research and Education) BCCC-CURE is a center established in 2020 at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York. The mission of the center is to enhance the lives of patients affected by cancer with a special focus on Brooklyn residents. Through this center, Brooklyn College seeks to expand its fundamental (basic and applied) research on cancer and combine research forces with local (New York City) cancer treatment centers and hospitals, and Brooklyn communities, while delivering first-class educational opportunities to our undergraduate and graduate students.
Twenty four faculty members are already engaged in cancer or cancer-related research at Brooklyn College. The official inauguration of the center is expected for Spring of 2021 but a number of activities will start in Fall of 2020. Check our news section and seminars/events links to see what we are up to.
