WHAT IS ROSWELL PARK?
Driven to eliminate cancer’s grip on humanity, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center has a long history of cancer care. Founded in 1898 as the nation’s first cancer research center, Roswell Park grew from the vision of its namesake, Dr. Roswell Park. This highly respected surgeon believed that investigations in the lab and the clinic should go hand-in-hand. We’ve offered our patients this combined approach to cancer care for well over a century.
Today, Roswell Park is one of the leading cancer facilities in the country. Our research has led to historic breakthroughs in the way we understand, prevent and cure cancer. That expertise also enhances how we train the next generation of physician leaders.
