Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

In 2001, the Sidney Kimmel Foundation for Cancer Research made a gift for “translational” research and direct patient care for those suffering from prostate and urologic cancers.  The Foundation’s $25 million gift to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center resulted in the development of the state-of-the-art Sidney Kimmel Center for Prostate and Urologic Cancers at Memorial Sloan Kettering.  Co-chaired by Dr. Howard Scher, Chief Oncologist, and Dr. Peter Scardino, Sloan Kettering’s Chief of Surgery, the Kimmel Center at Sloan Kettering sees thousands of patients weekly who participate in the latest research protocols and benefit from “personalized” treatments at what many consider the world’s leading cancer center.
