Ohio Cancer Research

Established in 1982, Ohio Cancer Research (OCR) is an independent, statewide, nonprofit organization dedicated to the cure and prevention of the many forms of cancer and the reduction of its debilitating effects through aggressive basic seed money research, cancer information, and awareness.

Over $18 million has been spent on cancer awareness and seed money research projects. Of that amount, nearly $8 million in seed money provided to researchers by OCR has generated nearly $800 million in new money from other sources to continue cancer research on projects initially funded as well as translational clinical trials at institutions including University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, The Cleveland Clinic, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and The Ohio State University.

Individual researchers have been or are being funded at The Ohio State University, Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Case Western Reserve University, The Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, University of Cincinnati, University of Toledo, Bowling Green State University, Ohio University, University of Dayton, Wright State University and the former Hipple Cancer Research Center in Dayton.
