Daniel K. Ludwig and Ludwig Cancer Research
Ludwig Cancer Research is an international community of distinguished scientists dedicated to preventing and controlling cancer. American businessman Daniel K. Ludwig began to support cancer research with the establishment of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in 1971. Today, the scientific efforts endowed through his resources have grown to encompass the Ludwig Institute and the Ludwig Centers at several institutions in the U.S. and across Europe, all dedicated to advancing the prevention and treatment of cancer.
Ludwig provides Ludwig scientists around the world with the resources and flexibility to realize the life-changing potential of their work, to see their discoveries improve human health and save lives. This philosophy, supported by robust translational programmes, significantly increases the likelihood that the groundbreaking discoveries made by Ludwig researchers lead to products that are attractive for commercial development.
Since its inception, Ludwig has invested nearly $3 billion in cancer research.
