With a mission to conduct innovative and integrative cancer research, the Harper Cancer Research Institute is how Notre Dame fights back against cancer. Your generosity and support of HCRI is greatly appreciated. You can help fund the ongoing research projects that are pursuing the complex challenges of cancer, such as:

  • diagnostics that recognize a tumor before it forms
  • engineering new cancer immunotherapies
  • creating revolutionary tumor-imaging equipment
  • a drug-targeting platform that could be a paradigm shift in chemotherapy
  • improving the resolution of a mammogram to detect breast cancer earlier
