Cancer Research Center

What we do:

The Cancer Research Center was founded in Columbia 54 years ago. Our scientists investigate the causes, prevention, and treatment of cancer. We have engineered a strain of bacteria that is attracted to cancer cells, but not healthy cells.

Why we’re great:

When a donation is made to Cancer Research Center, it stays in Boone County. Since we are a private nonprofit, we are not obligated to forward any portion of a donor's gift to a governing body. The funds go straight to local research.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

The Bacteriotherapy our scientists developed is attracted to cancer cells, AND it is welcomed by them. It also carries other therapies to the cancer site to treat the disease without poisoning the patient. Help us move this to the patient bedside.
