Cancer Research Facility Giving Opportunities


…even the visionaries at that time couldn’t have hoped for a campus like this, a campus that is still evolving, growing, and attracting world-class talent.
                                 -Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis on August 16, 2010

On August 16, 2010, more than 250 supporters and collaborators helped Regional Dean Dr. Sara Rusch break ground on the College of Medicine’s Cancer Research Center. The facility officially opened 16 months later.
