Northwestern University

Since we established the Corliss Johnson Memorial Foundation in 2004, we were committed to support cancer research. The Corliss Johnson Memorial Foundation has helped support numerous clinical research studies in cancer, with Dr. Mary Mulcahy and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, making a difference in the lives of patients and their families.
