When you support Empire State Ride, you’re paving the way for the next generation of cancer care.
The funds raised by our riders benefit cutting-edge cancer research at America’s first cancer center dedicated to research, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Through regional, national and global collaboration, the funds that come to Roswell Park go into efforts that will change the way we prevent, diagnose and treat cancers of all kinds everywhere. That means with Empire State Ride, your impact is worldwide.
Check out these videos to see how your dollars are being put to work right now:
CAR T-Cell Therapy
CAR T-Cell therapy, an innovative immunotherapy treatment, originally for blood cancers, that will now expand to solid tumors, thanks to forward-thinking, patient-focused leadership at Roswell Park.
SurVaxM, a therapeutic vaccine designed to help patients with a particularly aggressive form of brain cancer, glioblastoma. SurVaxM was developed at Roswell Park by Robert Fenstermaker, MD, Chair of Neurosurgery, and Michael Ciesielski, PhD, Assistant Professor of Oncology.
Response to Therapy
Response to Therapy, an innovative blood test that will change the way we treat cancer by giving doctors real-time updates on how a patient is responding to treatment. A phase 1 study, funded in part by donations, is already underway at Roswell Park.
