Indianapolis, Indiana

The Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center is one of the leading academic cancer research centers in the United States. It is Indiana’s only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center that provides patient care and is one of only 70 in the nation. The NCI designation recognizes that our collaborative research programs meet the NCI’s rigorous criteria for world-class, state-of-the-art programs in multidisciplinary cancer research that reaches all 92 counties in Indiana. It also means that the scientific discoveries made by researchers at the IU Simon Cancer Center benefit patients close to home throughout the state. Our researchers have made protocol-defining discoveries that have changed the way doctors treat testicular cancer, breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, genitourinary cancer, leukemia, multiple myeloma, thymoma and thymic carcinomas, and thoracic cancer. Our researchers and physicians are dedicated to eliminating cancer’s burden in Indiana and beyond.
