Since its inception in 1996, the Marsha Rivkin Center has been a principle catalyst for national and international research efforts aimed at finding solutions to ovarian cancer. As an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we look beyond institutional boundaries and work collaboratively with scientists and physicians worldwide at the forefront of ovarian cancer research.
Founded by renowned Swedish Cancer Institute medical oncologist Saul E. Rivkin, MD, in memory of his wife who lost her life to ovarian cancer, the Marsha Rivkin Center is a joint partnership with Swedish Medical Center and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center of Seattle, Washington.
The Marsha Rivkin Center provides funding for multiple efforts, including funding for innovative research pilot studies, scholar grants to up-and-coming investigators to encourage careers in ovarian cancer research, conducting public early detection screening for ovarian cancer, and producing nationally and internationally attended research symposia on ovarian cancer.
“The best and brightest are working to find the most innovative approaches to prevention, early detection and treatment of ovarian cancer. Because of your generosity, we are providing opportunities for more research than ever before. Together, we can conquer this deadly disease. Thank you for your commitment and enthusiasm.”
