Global Cancer Consortium

In 2020, the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center formed a Global Cancer Consortium with Tata Memorial Centre (Mumbai), Manipal Academy of Higher Education (Manipal), and Saroj Gupta Cancer Centre and Research Institute in India, and Mayo Clinic Cancer Center (Rochester, Jacksonville, and Scottsdale) in the United States. In 2022, Brown University Cancer Center, Rhode Island, USA, and China Medical University, Taiwan, joined the consortium. In 2023, University of Kansas Cancer Center joined as member. As a part of the cancer education and research activities, the partnering institutions host Lectures, Special Guest Seminars, Mini-Symposia and Workshops throughout the year and annual Conferences. Our signature events include GO-CREATE Workshops and INSPIRE Seminars. All basic science and clinical faculty and trainees at partnering or affiliated institutions are welcome to attend and actively participate in consortium activities.


Our mission is to foster global transdisciplinary collaborations in cancer education, research, treatment and community outreach to overcome cancer.


Globally empowered professional partnerships that enhance cancer care through research, education and mentored training of the next generation of scientists and clinicians.
