Turn today’s great ideas into tomorrow’s cancer breakthroughs. Janet D. Rowley had great ideas—transformative ideas. She identified the genetic basis for leukemia, confirming that cancer is a genetic disease. The powerful impact of her work is still felt decades later. Sadly, many of today’s most promising ideas in cancer research are never pursued due to a lack of resources. Without funding, visionary researchers like Janet D. Rowley are unable to conduct the innovative science that can change the way we diagnose and treat cancer. That’s where you come in. Your gift to the Janet D. Rowley Discovery Fund will support great ideas and the researchers who are devoted to tackling cancer from every angle. To make your gift, visit donatetocancer.uchicago.edu.
