Since its inception in 1957, MD Anderson Cancer Center’s Board of Visitors (BOV) has been a driving force in support of our mission to end cancer. This impressive group of business and community leaders from around the globe volunteers time, talents and financial resources to support our world-class faculty and staff in their efforts to provide the best patient care possible today and to conduct the most impactful research offering new hope for tomorrow. The passion and commitment of our BOV inspire me every day.
Illustrating the BOV’s crucial role in our mission are three new faculty awards, made possible by the generosity and foresight of:
- BOV member Bill Finneran, who has established the Finneran Family Prize in Translational Research to honor leading translational cancer research, which turns basic science breakthroughs into novel cancer therapies
- BOV member Jack Randall and his wife, Beverly, who have established the Jack and Beverly Randall Prize for Excellence in Cancer Research to encourage creativity and ingenuity in the clinic and in the research lab
- BOV member Gary Stein, along with his family and fellow BOV member Regina Rogers, who have established the Shirley Stein Scientific Endowed Research Award to recognize innovative clinical research that excels despite
On behalf of our team of cancer-fighting champions and the patients and families we serve, I extend my sincere gratitude for this significant philanthropic support, reflecting utmost confidence in our gifted and devoted faculty.
I’m profoundly grateful to all who join with MD Anderson to help extend and improve the lives of cancer patients everywhere. Together, we are Making Cancer History®.
