Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees, which includes distinguished philanthropists, representatives of other foundations, as well as presidents of the UCCRF subsidiary boards, builds a strong culture of philanthropy and promotes all modalities of fundraising to ensure that the Comprehensive Cancer Center’s researchers achieve their aspirations.

The board advocates on behalf of the Cancer Center to increase its visibility locally, regionally, and nationally and to enhance the center’s public image as a leader in cancer research and patient care; supports the dean of UChicago Medicine and director of the Cancer Center on key institutional initiatives and recruits; and maintains strong and vibrant boards.
