As a children’s health system, we take great pride in research at Nemours — so that we can better serve children with cancer and blood and bone disorders today and in the future.
The mission of our pediatric cancer specialists and scientists at the Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (NCCBD) is to build one of the nation’s top childhood cancer research centers — developing strategies to improve prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of childhood cancers.
Our overarching goal of the Nemours Center for Childhood Cancer Research (NCCCR, our research arm) is to achieve a 100% cure rate of childhood cancers – and with minimal side effects. We aim to do “whatever it takes” to support research into finding new and better treatment options. Our center is a place where scientists, doctors, patients, families, and the community can come together to improve children’s health.
