The John Wayne Cancer Institute is committed to bringing us all closer to a world without cancer.

Through the strength, courage and grit of its namesake, John Wayne attracts some of the smartest, most talented researchers and physicians to the place that is developing:

  • Novel approaches to detect cancer in a single drop of blood.
  • Therapies to boost Tcells which activate the immune system to fight the disease.
  • Less invasive surgeries, leading to less pain and scarring, and shorter hospital stays.
