Great news for the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute: the federal government has awarded it $100 million for the construction of a new radiation oncology center that will be part of the $1 billion Project One construction.

Dr. Michael Caligiuri, director of OSU’s Comprehensive Cancer Center, CEO of the James, and founder of Pelotonia, calls the funding a victory for cancer patients.

“As the world’s leading killer, cancer strikes one in two men and one in three women,” Mike said. “By providing funding for expanded access to leading edge cancer treatments at The James, the federal government is underscoring the critical need to win the war against cancer and put an end to a disease that has cost us dearly. It is, indeed, time to cure cancer. By expanding Ohio State’s cancer facilities, we are moving closer to a cancer-free world.”
