Under the guidance and foresight of Joan Massague the Institute today has a staff of more than 400 researchers, 100 laboratory investigators, and 200 graduates. They work in collaboration with a number of nearby universities and this has facilitated the growth of cancer research and also helps to mold the lives of many doctors and save many patients.
Apart from this, the Institute imparts many training programs and this would include PhD Programs, the Tri-Institutional MD-PhD Program, , and the Summer Research Internship Program.
What makes them different?
At the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the staff takes a step ahead to understand what the patient is going through because they believe personalized care with the help of science, and technology, is what can ultimately cure an individual.
You need to go there because:
- They give every patient the hope and an inner strength to fight a disease.
- They explain the scientific possibilities of treatment and the effects of each therapy
- Both the patient and their loved ones or caretakers get a chance to consult the doctors and clear the deepest fears and queries.
- They make sure to stay with the patient till the end of the treatment and also have blogs, and survivor communities so that people get a chance to exchange their views, and experiences with those who are new to such similar medical issues.
- They support and do take care to comfort and heal all concerns that arise in your minds.
- A highly specialized group of doctors work towards providing personalized care according to the body and the convenience of the patient.
John Morale was diagnosed with a very rare type of lung cancer in 2007. He was not a smoker and in fact did his best to live a healthy life. Before reaching MSKCC, he approached four other cancer centers and his final stop was at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Their talks, their behavior, their treatment and diagnosis proved and made him feel that he would be saved there and that started his relation with this hospital. While all the other hospitals advised to remove an entire lung, MSKCC promised to remove his cancer and only remove the portion of the lung that was affected. It was called sleeve resection.
Under the careful supervision of his doctor, he regained complete health, and is back to his normal life today.
