100% of the funds you raise will go toward expert clinical care and cancer research at Columbia’s Cancer Center.
Cancer Doesn’t Stop for COVID. Neither Do We.
Despite the challenges of the past year, dedicated doctors and nurses at Columbia’s Cancer Center have continued to provide compassionate care for patients and their families. Industry-leading scientists have persisted in pioneering research that steadily moves the needle forward in the fight against cancer. Their commitment to solving cancer is unwavering. And so is Velocity’s commitment to them.
Columbia’s Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center (HICCC) is one of 51 National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers nationwide, recognizing scientific and clinical excellence. The HICCC delivers cutting-edge cancer research and patient care. Working together, we empower innovation and discovery in prevention, research and clinical care to reduce the burden of cancer for our patients, our community, and the world.
Our Discoveries Here Will End Cancer Everywhere.
Money raised for Your Velocity fuels the innovation, collaboration and discovery that has put Columbia’s HICCC at the cutting edge of cancer research.
Funds raised this year will go toward:
- Expanding access to our multi-disciplinary cancer care, especially in areas of greatest need.
- Enhancing discovery through a “bench to bedside” pipeline, giving researchers resources to rapidly translate laboratory findings into new patient therapies.
- Fostering career growth across all phases of training, with an emphasis on diversity, equity and inclusion.
- Continuing Columbia’s proud legacy of innovative research through the Velocity Fellows Program and more!
Money raised by the Velocity community will be presented as grants to up to five researchers selected as Velocity Fellows, who will use these crucial funds to conduct cancer research at all stages.
The Velocity Fellows receiving grants from Your Velocity 2020 will be announced this summer. Stay tuned to learn about them and their research projects.
