Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is the world's largest and oldest dedicated cancer hospital
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is a cancer treatment and research institution founded in 1884 as the New York Cancer Hospital. MSK has long been a leader in cancer surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy and is the world's largest and oldest dedicated cancer hospital. MSK is composed of two intimately related institutions: Memorial Hospital for Cancer and Allied Diseases, providing patient care, and Sloan Kettering Institute, focused on basic-science research.

Along with patient care and education, research is a key component of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s mission. We have investigators who specialize in every aspect of cancer research, from basic studies of cells’ inner workings to late-stage clinical trials of new drugs. Our research staff includes scientists and physician-scientists who are recognized around the world as leaders in their fields. Many of our investigators head large, international clinical trials; serve on the editorial boards of top medical and scientific journals; have been honored with membership in the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Medicine, and other prestigious organizations; and have received major awards.
