The mission of the Global Oncology Program within UW-Madison’s Carbone Cancer Center is to foster partnerships between faculty and trainees across campus and with other national and international institutions, with the goal of addressing disparities in cancer care within low- and middle-income countries through research, education, outreach, capacity building, policymaking, and technological innovations.
Our vision is to reduce disparities and improve cancer health outcomes for all people.
The Global Oncology Program at UWCCC was launched in 2021 in an effort to streamline communication and research happening at a global scale at UWCCC. This program aims to:
- Increase partnerships and collaboration opportunities between researchers at UWCCC and other institutions
- Catalogue, highlight, and promote ongoing international cancer activities within UW
- Develop a Global Oncology community in Madison through networking events, seminars, conferences, workshops, and other educational activities
- Promote Global Oncology research, capacity building, and outreach efforts by supporting funding opportunities for those wanting to pursue cancer control efforts in LMICs
