Advancing Health Together

We live in a time of unprecedented potential in biomedical science, education, technology, population and community health, and health care delivery. As one of the world’s foremost academic health enterprises, Duke Health integrates the Duke University School of Medicine, Duke University School of Nursing, Duke University Health System, and health programs across the university. Duke Health advances these frontiers through state-of-the-art clinical care, health promotion and disease prevention, breakthrough basic and clinical research, and educational experiences that prepare the next generation of health leaders. Every donor is an important partner in that work, and every gift plays a role in helping Duke Health and its constituent units advance health together.

A Fluorescent Dye to Help...

Researchers at the Duke Cancer Institute are teaming up with several other institutions to develop a fluorescent dye that is injected into cancerous tumors and lights up when viewed under a special camera. This allows surgeons to see if residual cancer remains after the tumor has been removed.

Fighting the Resistance

Why do perfectly good cancer treatments suddenly stop working? Researcher and lymphoma survivor Kris Wood is finding answers.

Personal Attention For...

Five years after surgery to treat prostate cancer, Steele Dewey of Charlotte, North Carolina, was told in 2010 that cancer had spread, so he and his wife, Molly, decided to seek advice at an academic medical center.

24 Years and Counting

A large number of options for advanced prostate cancer is what drew James "Jimmy" Barnes to Duke Cancer Institute, after having been treated at UNC-Chapel Hill for more than a decade.
