Ludwig Cancer Research is an international community of distinguished scientists dedicated to preventing and controlling cancer. American businessman Daniel K. Ludwig began to support cancer research in 1971 with the establishment of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research. Today, the scientific efforts endowed through his resources have grown to encompass the Ludwig Institute and the Ludwig Centers at six U.S. institutions, all pursuing breakthroughs to alter the course of cancer.
Ludwig Centers and Ludwig professorships have been established at six leading U.S. institutions. The Centers, created in 2006, operate independently of the Ludwig Institute but work collaboratively with each other and with the Institute at the forefront of cancer research.
