The inception of the Hippocratic Cancer Research Foundation (HCRF) began in 2014 by four compassionate individuals who wanted to make a difference for humanity and those impacted by hearing the word "cancer".

It was embraced by many, becoming a reality in 2015. HCRF’s mission is to eliminate cancer and save lives by funding the discovery, development and implementation of effective new therapies and groundbreaking research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.

Entrusting in Dr. Platanias and his team of world renowned scientists and physicians, your philanthropic support for robust and vigorous cancer research continues making life changing advances.

HCRF provides funding for “out of the box” research at the Lurie Cancer Center to address the most urgent concerns in the fields of cancer biology and oncology in daring and innovative ways.

HCRF separates itself from other cancer foundations in that we selectively focus on investing in “think outside the box” foundational research.

This is a critical first step to developing new and innovative treatments with huge potential for remarkable advances in cancer care. Funds raised by HCRF will accelerate cutting-edge translational research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.

The Lurie cancer team consists of an elite group of scientists and clinicians and HCRF support has helped them make important strides towards conquering cancer. Together, they are at the forefront of precision medicine and with our help they will achieve breakthroughs and eliminate cancer as a cause of death.
