Gateway's Associate Board
The Gateway Associate Board: Our Vision
Cancer affects virtually everyone, regardless of age, gender, race or ethnicity. The Gateway Associates Board believes that we must pursue cures for cancer – urgently and thoughtfully. We are optimistic that by supporting promising and innovative research through Gateway-funded clinical trials, we can help cancer patients feel better and live longer. We are judicious with resources and focused on the future. And while cancer can be devastating for those it affects, we believe we can find joy and reward in working to find cures.
