The CCNY-MSKCC Partnership is a collaboration between The City College of New York (CCNY) and Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK). The Partnership leverages the strengths of our two institutions to build a stronger cancer program aimed at understanding cancer health disparities and their impact on racial and ethnic minority and socio-economically disadvantaged populations. Lead by principal investigators Tim Ahles, PhD and Francesca Gany, MD, MS (MSK) and Karen Hubbard, PhD (CCNY), the Partnership is addressing cancer health disparities in three important ways: research, training, and community outreach.
