Our Mission

The Stanley M. Marks Blood Cancer Research Fund continues to make an indelible impact on the overall body of knowledge of cancer treatment, detection, and prevention, the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, and the 100,000 patients it serves annually. It does so by supporting highly innovative research at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center aimed at the development of new and more effective therapies for patients with all types of cancers as well as early detection and prevention strategies to reduce the burden of cancer regionally, nationally, and globally.
