Purdue University Cancer Research Center is a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated basic-research cancer center. The facility has been involved in more than 40 years of cancer research and currently employs 118 scientists who are each working to discover a cure for cancer. The center’s research is focused on the cellular level of cancer. The scientists use their findings to impact the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of cancer patients, including those with mesothelioma. However, patients do not receive care at the center. The institution is purely for research.

The Purdue University Cancer Research Center was the first center to receive NCI designation in the state of Indiana. Since then, the center has fostered connections with other institutions to better serve cancer patients. The Purdue University Cancer Research Center is partnered with Walther Cancer Institute, Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center and the Oncological Sciences Center at Purdue University’s Discovery Park. Patients being treated at these centers and others benefit from the research conducted at the Purdue University Cancer Research Center. Their research has led to multiple clinical trials for new treatments benefiting mesothelioma patients and those with other types of cancer.
