NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell creates world-class cancer center
Date:2/5/2008

NEW YORK (Feb. 5, 2008) -- NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center has created an expanded cancer program dedicated to advancing research, prevention and treatment of the disease. The new Cancer Center is led by renowned cancer physician-scientist Dr. Andrew Dannenberg.

A joint initiative of Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, the Center will create strengthened and expanded research programs and multidisciplinary collaborations.

"This bold initiative will build on our strengths to create a cancer center dedicated to improving the diagnosis and treatment of patients," says Dr. Antonio M. Gotto, Jr., the Stephen and Suzanne Weiss Dean of Weill Cornell Medical College. "By our commitment to advancing cancer research from bench to bedside, we will fulfill our mission of unlocking scientific and medical discoveries to improve lives around the globe."

"Our goal is to transform what is already an excellent cancer program into a renowned cancer center, investing in areas where we have historic strength -- such as lymphoma, lung cancer, genitourinary and preventive oncology -- while establishing new programs that can be uniquely identified with NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell," says Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

"Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S. While scientific progress continues, close to 1.5 million people will be diagnosed this year. Many of these cases will be found after the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. New ideas are desperately needed to understand why cancers form, grow and spread and how to contain them, predict them and ultimately prevent them," says Dr. David P. Hajjar, senior executive vice dean and executive vice provost of Weill Cornell Medical College and dean of Weill Cornell's Graduate School of Medical Sciences.

In conjunction with this new Center, we have committed 10 new
