Global Cancer Consortium

In 2020, Markey Cancer Center formed a cancer research consortium with Tata Memorial Center, Manipal University Cancer Center, and Saroj Gupta Cancer Center in India, and Mayo Clinic Cancer Center (Rochester, Jacksonville, and Scottsdale) in the United States. As a part of the cancer research consortium activities, the partnering institutions host monthly Faculty/Trainee Lectures and Special Guest Lectures. Mini-Symposiums are also held throughout the year. All basic science and clinical faculty and trainees associated with Markey are welcome to attend and participate in consortium activities.

India COVID-19 Relief

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing unprecedented challenges and hardships for the 1.39 billion people in India. In an effort to help our partners, friends, and family members in India, the students, staff, and faculty of the Markey Cancer Center have started a donation drive to send oxygen concentrators and accessories through the non-profit Markey Cancer Foundation and the non-profit US-India Chamber of Commerce to our partnering cancer centers in India. 

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation below and help us supply India with life-saving equipment, such as oxygen concentrators and other necessary medical supplies, so that they can get this devastating COVID-19 crisis under control.

Donations can be made here.
