Wilmot Cancer Institute

  • Interventional Clinical Trials at Wilmot continued to grow, particularly for prevention studies including screenings and smoking cessation tools.
  • Philanthropic support has seeded several promising pilot grants that have potential to transform treatment options for cancer patients; many of these grants are eligible to apply for additional funding through foundations and federal agencies, which further amplifies the impact our donors have.
  • Annual funds supported Wilmot’s recent recruitment of new faculty with a bold vision for the future, including Anna Weiss, MD, the new director of the Breast Cancer Service Line, Lauren Ghazel, PhD, FNP-BC, an associate member of the Cancer Prevention and Control program, and Marlies P. Rossmann, MD, PhD, an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Genetics.
