Yale Cancer Center

Yale Cancer Center was founded in 1974 as a result of an act of Congress in 1971, which declared the nation's "war on cancer." It is one of 41 Comprehensive Cancer Centers throughout the country designated by the National Cancer Institute. The Cancer Center brings together the resources of Yale School of Medicine, Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven, and Yale University. Chemotherapy (nitrogen mustard) was used for cancer care for the very first time in 1942 at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
