Karmanos Cancer Institute’s 27th Annual Partners Event to be held Thursday, September 30, 2021

This virtual event supports Karmanos’ cutting-edge cancer research

On Thursday, September 30, 2021, the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute will celebrate its 27th annual Partners Event highlighting the importance of cancer research.

The night will feature an electric live performance from Collision Six, powerful presentations and an incredible auction with all proceeds benefiting Karmanos Cancer Institute.

Partners Night 2021 is virtual and is free for everyone.

To register, donate and participate go to Partners21.givesmart.com.

Partners 2021 All funds raised through sponsorships, donations and the auction will support the work of a multidisciplinary team of applied, clinical and basic scientists who are focused on addressing racial healthcare disparities associated with lung cancer and response to treatment with immunotherapy. This comprehensive initiative will assess how immunotherapy differentially affects African American and white lung cancer patients and the extent to which there are differential biological, psychological and social drivers by race of treatment response. This research has the potential to identify race-specific factors that could be used to drive treatment decision-making and clinical follow-up.

Since the Partners Committee began, Partners Events have raised more than $17 million to support Karmanos’ world-renowned scientists in conducting ground-breaking research, which helps lead to new and advanced treatment options and supportive post-treatment care for cancer survivors.
