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.
Why do perfectly good cancer treatments suddenly stop working? Researcher and lymphoma survivor Kris Wood is finding answers.
“One day, patients will have access to regenerative medicine treatments that will circumvent the complications of organ donation,” says Sharlini Sankaran, PhD, executive director of Duke’s Regeneration Next Initiative. “We will be able to use our bodies’ own innate repair mechanisms to eliminate the wait time, cost, and limited supply of organ transplantation. Instead of transplanting organs, we will know how to repair our own.”
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.
