About Roswell Park


Dr. Roswell Park founded the Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) in 1898, creating the first cancer center in America, located in Buffalo, N.Y. RPCI is the only Upstate New York facility to hold the National Cancer Center’s designation of "comprehensive cancer center" and to serve as a member of the prestigious National Comprehensive Cancer Network.

Over its long history, Roswell Park Cancer Institute has made fundamental contributions to reducing the cancer burden and has successfully maintained an exemplary leadership role in setting the national standards for cancer care, research and education.
