The Women's Cancers Program (WCP) is part of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts. The hallmark of the WCP is disease-targeted research for women combined with the highest quality of personalized and compassionate care for cancers that uniquely arise in women.


This website will help you understand breast, ovarian, cervical and endometrial cancer research. The pages on this site will illustrate important activities of our Women's Cancers Program, including our emphasis on patient-focused translational research, education and community outreach.

Our mission is to integrate science and discovery into patient care by the constant movement of ideas between the laboratory bench and the patient's bedside (translational research), and by continual communication between our clinical and laboratory researchers.

Meeting our mission means:

  • advancing translational research toward improving prevention, early diagnosis, treatment and patient outcomes,
  • providing the finest medical care to any woman with cancer,
  • educating the next generation of physicians and scientists,
  • offering useful information to all women and their families about their health.
