  • The Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers at Dana-Farber began with an insight into the nature of cancer – and of human psychology.

    Researchers were discovering that cancers of the breast and female reproductive tract were more closely related at a basic biological level than had been thought. It was also clear that women's cancers – wherever they originate – unite patients in a kind of sisterhood of shared concern and experience.

    Bringing research and clinical programs in all women's cancers under a single umbrella would, it was thought, create a natural alliance for better care and smarter science. That goal proved well-founded.
