Stand up to Cancer

Stand Up To Cancer’s (SU2C) mission is to raise funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now. SU2C brings together the best and the brightest researchers and mandates collaboration among the cancer community.

In May 2009, SU2C launched its first five scientific Dream Teams. Today, nineteen Dream Teams and two Translational Research Teams are diligently working on eradicating cancer, driven by the same principles that laid the foundation of the Stand Up To Cancer model: collaboration, innovation, acceleration, targeted therapy, and translational research. Leaders from across disciplines, institutions, countries, and specialties are finally competing against cancer instead of each other, as research moves from bench to bedside to benefit patients more quickly. Since Stand Up To Cancer was founded in May 2008, over 160 clinical trials have been planned, initiated, or completed by SU2C scientists, in which more than 8,000 patients have participated.
