Why Compute the Cure?

Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, accounting for 8.8 million deaths in 2015. Over the next two decades, the number of new cases is expected to rise by about 70 percent.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.
