Partners in Early Detection
The Canary Center at Stanford works closely with the Canary Foundation, a non-profit focused on fundraising for early cancer detection research. However, the Canary Center at Stanford and the Canary Foundation are distinct organizations.
The Canary Center is a research center comprised of Stanford Faculty and scientists who are focused on early detection research programs. The faculty, staff and students at the Canary Center at Stanford conduct independent research projects and also participate on Canary Foundation science teams. The Canary Center at Stanford is led by Dr. Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, the Chair of the Radiology department and Virginia & D.K. Ludwig Professor of Cancer Research.
