Serving the region, leading the nation
At our Cancer Center--a joint venture between Dartmouth College and Dartmouth Health--multi-disciplinary teams of physicians, nurses, scientists, and engineers collaborate seamlessly on research and patient care. These interactions drive innovation and bring the latest advances in cancer care to urban and rural communities across Northern New England. In fact, our Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center north of Boston and east of Buffalo. And now, the new Byrne Family Cancer Research Institute will elevate and accelerate our region’s contributions among global cancer research institutes, and make new and novel cancer treatment a reality for the people of our region.
Our vision for overcoming cancer
Join us as we push even farther to make the scientific discoveries and innovations that will transform cancer care and prevention.
We’re creating new, more effective, and less toxic cancer therapies and technologies—building on our excellence and success in immunotherapy.
Dartmouth Innovations Accelerator
We’re moving the most promising therapies and innovations into the marketplace and ultimately to patients’ bedsides.
We’re working to stop cancer before it starts by developing the tools needed to map any individual’s lifetime genetic, behavioral, and environmental risk factors for cancer and creating bold new strategies to reduce those risks.
We’re providing Dartmouth students and trainees with in-depth, experiential learning opportunities and preparing them to tackle the world’s biggest problems.
