At Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center, we know that research cures cancer.

IU has done it before: Four decades ago, an IU team led by Lawrence Einhorn, MD, developed the cure for testis cancer. This trailblazing work has since saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of young men worldwide. Today, Dr. Einhorn continues to work alongside nearly 300 cancer researchers dedicated to defeating cancer.

Our work is driven by constant reminders that science saves lives – including those of our own colleagues. Every day, research nurse Alesha Arnold, RN, fights cancer on two fronts: personally and professionally. When she offers a patient hope through participation in a clinical trial, she speaks from personal experience as the drug currently extending her life was only approved for her type of cancer in 2018.
