Making a Difference

The fight against cancer begins with fundamental research on its causes, detection, prevention and treatment at National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer centers like the UCI Health Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Your support through the UCI Anti-Cancer Challenge directly funds cancer-related projects, enabling UC Irvine physician-scientists to generate crucial preliminary data for high-impact research. In partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), a portion of the funds is also dedicated to pediatric cancer research.
