Massey’s physicians, researchers and staff are outstanding.

Their work is groundbreaking and discoveries are happening. To maximize this talent, we need more physician-scientists to translate science into new treatments, more collaboration between great minds and more scientific teams bringing innovation and intellectual power to our mission.

Research for Life will:

  • Fund the recruitment of 35 new physician-scientist and scientific researchers to pursue groundbreaking scientific concepts, lead translational research and implement clinical trials—all in the quest to find cures for cancer.
  • Allow Massey to retain physicians and researcher’s whose work is among the nation's finest.
  • Enhance the intellectual and economic power of Richmond and the Commonwealth of Virginia.
  • Save and improve thousands of lives of those facing cancer.
