Foundation Supporting the Cancer Moonshot


Focused Ultrasound Community Encouraged to Join Cancer Moonshot

During his 2016 State of the Union address, President Barack Obama announced the establishment of a new Cancer Moonshot to accelerate cancer research. The initiative—led by Vice President Joe Biden—aims to make more therapies available to patients as quickly as possible, in part by breaking down silos that are impediments to progress in cancer research in order to promote collaboration and data sharing. 

Please watch and share! 

Greg Simon, Executive Director of the Moonshot Task Force, gave an inspiring address at the 5th International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound. His talk kicked off presentations highlighting cutting-edge research into focused ultrasound treatment of cancer. 

"This is your chance to be part of an army that will take cancer on. Everyone has a role to play.... What will make the Moonshot successful is your belief that it can be done." -Greg Simon

Focused Ultrasound Foundation and the Cancer Moonshot

We believe that focused ultrasound has the potential to transform treatment and improve outcomes for patients with cancer. We are contributing to the Cancer Moonshot in many ways, accelerating cancer research with this promising technology and bringing it to patients as quickly as possible. Foundation Chairman Dr. Neal Kassell was chosen by the Vice President to serve on the Cancer Moonshot Blue Ribbon Panel

Focused Ultrasound for Cancer

Focused ultrasound has the potential to improve quality and longevity of life and decrease the cost of care for patients with cancer. The technology could enhance or replace the four pillars of traditional cancer treatment: surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy.
