What is the
Cancer History Project

The goal of the Cancer History Project is twofold: to collect and preserve the history of cancer research, and to spark rigorous discussion of the achievements of the past half-century.

Created to mark the 50th anniversary of the National Cancer Act of 1971, the Cancer History Project is a free historical resource that places a vast, expertly curated collection of primary sources and authoritative interpretations within easy reach of researchers, medical professionals, students, policy-makers, and patients.

The Cancer History Project is a new way of preserving history: collaboratively curated by the institutions and people who shaped it.
