Fox Chase Cancer Center, part of the Temple University Health System, is one of the leading cancer research and treatment centers in the United States. Founded in 1904 in Philadelphia as one of the nation’s first cancer hospitals, Fox Chase was also among the first institutions to be designated as a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center in 1974—a distinction it still maintains today along with just 48 other institutions nationwide.

Fox Chase conducts a broad array of nationally competitive basic, translational, and clinical research, with special programs in cancer prevention, detection, survivorship, and community outreach. Here, top minds in science and medicine are working together to ensure our patients receive the best care possible.
