Inspired by America’s drive a generation ago to put a man on the moon, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center has launched an ambitious and comprehensive action plan, called the Moon Shots Program®, to make a giant leap for patients – to rapidly and dramatically reduce mortality and suffering in several major cancers.
The nation’s top-ranked hospital for cancer care, with its unparalleled resources and capabilities, is uniquely positioned to accelerate the end of cancer. It’s closer than you think. What’s learned from these initial cancer “moon shots” will ultimately lead to cures for all types of the disease.

The Moon Shots Program is focused on thirteen cancer types, but lessons learned from these cancers will be used to impact all cancer types. Through these Moon Shots®, our teams have made notable discoveries to advance cancer prevention, early detection and treatment practices and improve the lives of patients.
Research platforms support the Moon Shots efforts, enhancing the speed at which discoveries are translated into clinical outcomes for patients.
