Why Compute the Cure?

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for 8.2 million deaths in 2012. Within the next two decades, the number of new cases per year is expected to grow from 14 million to 22 million annually.1

As technology plays an increasingly important role in cancer research, the NVIDIA Foundation is in a unique position to help. By leveraging our employees, partners, technology and financial resources, our goal is to accelerate the fight against cancer.
